I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passing by…

all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy

Ok, so what we have here is a retired, righthand drive Postal Jeep (which could be a great LeMons theme by itself) but here in the Great Northwest, these typically end up as repurposed, earworm-spawning, change collecting machines of mass-parent-irritation.

And, at only $500 bucks, even though it is not running, it is a LeMons contender without even trying.  Having previously owned an aging Jeep of similar qualities, I can attest at how easy it is to swap an engine from pretty much anything into it.  2-stroke weed-whacker motor?  Yep.  BMW v-12?  Piece of cake!  Cut out the (probably already rusted) floorpans and Fred Flintstone your way to victory?  Hell yes!

Bonus points if you blast The Music of the Icecream Man for the duration of the race and have a full complement of treats on-board for your pit crew (and anyone else that flags you down on the track.)  Index of Effluency trophy is almost guaranteed if you can figure a way to re-dual-purpose a slighty-used intercooler.
Find it for sale here.

    There's a very nice looking example for sale here for the princely sum of One Thousand American Dollars. I'd rock it. assuming my brain would allow my left hand to shift properly
    Can't say as I've ever seen one as an ice cream truck, though.

      they are handy because the mol… er ice cream man can just pull right up to the curb to hand out cand…. er ice cream treats.

      Very cool but hugely impractical. Icecream Man would have to exit the vehicle every time he made a sale.

        Yeah but this was happening back in the day

        Thankfully, I am able to keep my nieces and nephews away from this one

        Granted hawking ice cream wares has become alot easier, the ice cream truckers were a hellova lot cooler back then.

            I had been considering posting one before I saw these, but I couldn't find any pictures with roofs on. Same thing with airport service vehicles, such as the truck with a long conveyor belt or the stairs.

          I remember the Good Humor trucks with their cheerful bells. It seems like the guys who drove them around the neighborhood were also nattily attired in white uniforms, too. Yeah, a class act.

    Thank you for not making that music auto-play.

      Although I've heard many that would benefit from autotune.

    My wife wants a mail Jeep. Yeah, I'm serious! She even scours Craigslist with me. It's totally awesome except I for the fact we have no more parking. Then she starts up with that "You should sell something" crazy talk and we find ourselves locked in that awkward silent stare.
    Sigh. The universe has a weird sense of humor…
