Food fans are being given a rare opportunity to acquire their very own unique food truck and concept gin bar - with bidding starting at just £5. 

Dolly, a vintage 2CV repurposed into a one of kind food truck and bar combo, has travelled the country over the past 20 months and is now looking for a new home, after her current owners decided it was time to let someone else take on the next chapter of the popular little 2CV’s reinvention and repurpose.

The creative team behind her creation said the clever little car can turn out amazing food from her state of the art kitchen, run concept bars and even has her own Eco Station on board which includes Britain’s first mobile water refill station, dispensing chilled mineral water for free.

Recently a finalist at The British Street Food Awards in London, Dolly has also featured on both the BBC and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.

Andrew Mellon, creative director for Dolly is keen to find her a good home, where she hopefully can continue her work as an ambassador on the issues of food waste and the challenges of going plastic-free, he said: “Everyone loves Dolly, people can’t pass her by, they all want to know the story behind her.

“I am hopeful that she will capture someone’s imagination and the legacy we have started with our Dolly 2CV will live on long into the future”

Dolly repurposing cost over £25,000 and was paid for by six British companies in 2018 to celebrate the 70th Birthday of the 2CV.

Dolly is being sold with no reserve – with bidding starting at just £5 – in a 72-hour sale on eBay, starting at 8am on Monday 21st October. The link to eBay can be found on www.DollyDoes.com or here.
