A lot of heritage restorations were undertaken at the Whitby Morrison factory during 2014, and there are many more lined up for the forthcoming 12 months.
What better way to start 2015 than with the stand out vehicle of 2014 – and perhaps the finest heritage conversion to date; The Rolls Royce.
Unveiled at the Whitby Morrison Event at Nantwich in October, the Rolls Royce was a popular Ice Cream Van with all Mobilers.
Its immediate future lies with us, but with a hive of interest in the vehicle, its quite likely that you’ll be seeing a lot more of it serving ice cream somewhere in the country during 2015.
With the interior still open to customisation (which will be decided by its end owner) we took advantage of a photographic opportunity with our friends at Crewe Hall.
I’m sure you’ll agree; it looks natural against the backdrop of a stately home – certainly a better suiting than the blue cladding of the factory!
We’ll keep you up to date with the progress of the Rolls Royce and the final specification upon completion of the interior. And in the meantime we’ll bring you news of each heritage restoration as it reaches completion.
To whet your appetite there’ll be a Bedford, Morris J Type and Commer for you to soon enjoy.
