Berlin Ice Cream Van

25 08 2012

A T2b-based ice cream van conversion. The photos were taken on a somewhat rainy Berlin summer afternoon some two weeks ago, at one of the beach bars at the Spree river banks in Berlin Mitte. Looks like the basis is the high-rooftop type of van that was also used by the German Postal Service at the time, here not in postal yellow with a white high-roof but in the Italian tricolor colors. Big bell at the front to announce the ice man has arrived. Sticker on the back (“Berlin Bulli Eis”) suggests this bus belongs to Hippiebus-berlin.de at ClassicDepot, formerly known as Berlin Bulli.de, the local Volkswagen bus rental company. They offer 14 different T2b Westfalia campervans for hire, all in orange and white (see also previous post). Looks like this ice cream van is still used for its original purpose – great!
