Ice Cream Van

1.  Does anyone know which 1950s chassis this van was built on?

2.  Does anyone remember this van?

3.  Does anyone have any further photos of the van?

Ice Cream Van

"One of my  interests is in model cars and vans and finding out about some of the more exotic vehicles that were turned into commercial vehicles such as ice cream vans.

The Boni van doesn't look like the usual Ford / Austin / Morris chassis.  It could be more upmarket: Humber, Lanchester etc. etc."
