The design icon that is the 2CV, turns 70 years old in 2018. The British are celebrating this monumental birthday by having a 2CV called 'Dolly' transformed into the World’s Smallest Food Truck. Dolly will be fitted out with state of the art cooking facilities, built into a custom stainless steel kitchen, complete with a £35,000 price tag.
The project is supported by around 50 partners and sponsors, including the 'Best of British' food, drink and innovation. The build will be an all British affair, as seven 'Great British' companies join forces to design, build and manufacture, in Britain, our 2CV Dolly into her 70th Birthday repurpose design.
The finished car will be seen at major sporting, motor and food events across the UK and also around the World. The 2CVat70 will be a travelling ambassador for the Charity 'Food Cycle', highlighting the issue of food waste across the UK.
The 2CVat70 project has captured the international motor, food and news media imagination around the World. You can follow the car's journey on all her social media platforms and see her media coverage on our media wall here.
