He snapped up the rusting 1954 Morris J-type for just £2,000 and took it to restorers Cummins in Crewe, lavishing £35,000 on his labour of love.

The restoration was such a success that Rolling Stone Sir Mick Jagger  recently offered to buy the vehicle for £100,000 when he clapped eyes on it at a show.

The owner said: ‘I was working with Carter’s Steam Fair on Wandsworth Common when Sir Mick came up with his son and bought a couple of ice creams.

‘He told me he’d really fallen in love with my van and asked me if I would consider selling it. I was stunned when he offered me £100,000.

‘Sir Mick has got seven children and I think he probably wanted my van to entertain his grandchildren.’

But I told him I couldn’t possibly sell it, because it’s always been my dream to drive my 12-year-old daughter Alessia to her wedding one day in my little ice cream van.”

English-born Giuseppe first got into the ice cream trade when his father Vic, from Naples, and Sicilian mother Grace won the catering concession for Battersea Park in London. to read the full article click here
