Bedford CF in 1:43 scale, based on the Bedford (Vauxhall) light commercial vehicle produced between 1969 and 1988. It replaced the Bedford CA Van and its van variants soon became some of the most popular light commercial vehicles in Britain. The CF came in three versatile body shapes – the standard panel van with side sliding door behind the passenger door; as the basis for the Bedford Dormobile; and a special van with self-contained cab on a general purpose chassis onto which a wide range of custom-built bodies could be built. This is where Whitby Morrison enters the scene on our Ice Cream Van. The maker of bespoke ice cream vans was founded by Bryan Whitby in 1952 and the name of Whitby Morrison is recognised as the world’s leading manufacturer of ice cream vehicles. The Cheshire based company, is still family owned under Managing Director Stuart Whitby, his two sons Stuart and Kristopher and a dynamic and highly skilled workforce. Their vans operate in over 60 countries, built to perform in all climates and conditions, with the result that they are recognised as the finest producer of ice cream vans in the world.
Our Mr Whippy Bedford CF/Morrison vehicle is registered NDS 749N from 1974-5. Decorated in pale pink with cream and white masking to roof and upper body, the Mr Whippy character is proudly promoting his wares on the sides of the van under the specially designed hatch, as well as across the back. Inside the vehicle, the detailed fridges are moulded in white with green tops. The ice cream making machine is silver and the worktops white, all sitting on a grey moulded floor. The detail on this model is amazing.
