This classic Mini spent its… life as an ice cream delivery car.
It has now found a new home in the BMW Group Classic museum.
In September 1960, his edition was released, as a light open truck, which became the platform for trucks of Cummins ice cream distribution. After many years of joy the ice cream canteen found its way in the BMW Group Classic collection.
Cummins began producing trucks in the 1970s. During the conversion, its roof was removed pickup cabin and its rear part, opening the interior to the “carriage”. He adjusted on her a piece with large, windows and large sliding doors and so the conversion to an ice cream parlor was complete. The bright pink color is decorated with ice cream sticks on the front windows and a ‘Tom and Jerry’ motif on the rear.
Cummins sold the ice cream parlors in the UK and abroad, but they did not have a long life. There are few left and maintenance costs can become prohibitive. There were othersIce Cream Vans with different designs, but the Cummins roof remains recognizable. Despite the small dimensions its design made it very convenient.
We are glad that a cute creation as she was saved from the press for scrap.
