Plum Pictures and Sky 1 approached Towability for quite an unusual request. A mobile fish and chip van for Freddie Flintoff.
Sky 1 wanted a vehicle conversion that’s was as traditional as fish and chips and not seen before on the street food circuit. We had the perfect vehicle in mind, a London Taxi Cab.
This inspired both Sky1 to start the ball rolling with a new TV project and for us a completely new vehicle conversion, with the added complexity of accomodating a 6 ft 4in national treasure.
Flintoff: Lord of the Fries, is a six-part hour-long series. Starting at a Lancastrian chip shop near to where Flintoff grew up, before heading to places including Giant’s Causeway and Whitby, touring with the Towability Freddie Flintoff mobile fish and chip Van.
We discovered, the actual London Taxi Cab lends itself quite easily to a mobile catering conversion, however it did require a complete custom build body. The addition of curved wooden corners for that extra added styling really sets it off.
