Solar Powered Gelato
It’s very cute.
It’s a FordG100, an old postal van from the USA which was reportedly used in the military in a prior life. We found it on Gumtree in Melbourne and had it sent over on the back of a truck after an exceptionally scary and sketchy Gumtree transaction, in the middle of the night, in the bush, in cash. It started of as just a matte black shell, we hand painted the interior and built in everything to fit, slowly bringing it to life with some love and care.
We installed two solar panels that sit on the roof, which power the freezer/lights/music inside the truck. No smelly or noisy generators, which means that all we have to do is pull up, pop the side door and begin scooping. The truck measures 2.5m tall, 2m wide and 3.5m long, it’s tiny and easily manoeuvrable making it easily accessible for all sorts of different venues and backyards.
