Kissinger 2 Berth



2 Berth • splitscreen

Kissinger has been on the fleet since the very beginning & continues to bring smiles and happiness wherever he trundles! He's a right hand drive 1967 splitscreen van with an original Canterbury Pitt conversion. We ran a 'Name the Van' competition at Innocent's festival 'Fruitstock' in the summer of 2006, and 'Kissinger' was chosen from the 3000 entries. He is also a bit of a celebrity being featured for over a decade in the cartoon strip "Gemma Bovery" by Posy Simmonds in the Guardian in the 1970's and 1980's.
