The 1:76 scale Bedford CA, presented in the cream and red colour scheme of the ‘real thing’ with a white masked roof, solid red skirt and red graphics. Registered 57 TMA, the graphics boast the award winning home-made ice cream, produced in Appledore. A tooling modification to the Oxford Bedford CA tooling sees the addition of two ice cream cones positioned at the front of the roof above the windscreen, while the rear warns following motorists to stop and watch for children.
The North Devon family firm has been making ice cream since1936, founded by David Hocking with one van – a 1928 Morris Cowley- which he converted into an ice cream van. His son David joined the business after the War, along with other family members along the way who have expanded both the business and the fleet across the years. Today, the Hocking family, under the management of grandsons Geoff and Neil and great grandson Andrew, still operate out of Appledore near Bideford and sell their famous and unique ice creams across the County from their fourteen company vans. The recipe for their vanilla ice cream has been handed down through the generations and has won numerous National Ice Cream Competitions, so if you are in Devon on holiday, make a bee-line for Hockings for the ultimate ice cream experience!
