UNIQUE RETRO MOBILE SHOP / DISPLAY UNIT FOR SALE - AS SEEN AT GOODWOOD

THE UNIQUE
‘MARIOT’
VINTAGE MOBILE SHOP / DISPLAY UNIT

As seen at the world famous Goodwood Revival meeting


Built in 1965 for the Mariot family of shoe retailers by the respected French coachbuilders ‘CRANSAC’, famed for their eccentric promotional vehicles so often employed on events such as the ‘Tour de France’ in the 1950s & ‘60s, this unique mobile retail outlet was retained by the original Mariot family until Spring of 2012, when we discovered it in South West France.

 



Completed with Drinkwaters customary painstaking attention to detail, the final touches were applied by Derek Pennicott who restored all the original sign-writing by hand. ‘Mariot’ was then ready for its first assignment at the fabulous Goodwood Revival 2012 meeting where ‘Mariot’ was commissioned to act as the main-event programme sales outlet to the 158,000 historic racing and vintage clothing enthusiasts who attend this world-class meeting. The Goodwood Revival meeting’s ethos is to create a ‘True step back in Time’ and therefore nothing gets used on this centre stage that is not 100% genuine and original – ‘Mariot’ certainly fitted Goodwood's bill exactly. So much so, that Goodwood invited 'Mariot' back as a prime display exhibit at its prestigious Festival of Speed Press Day in March this year.


 
 

‘Mariot’ is ready to be used as a retail outlet or could be converted to your desired specification by Drinkwaters, be it for food, beverages or retail/promotions/gallery space. It goes without saying that this vehicle is unique – there is none like it on the vintage festival circuit and it has already proved its credentials at a world-class event (where it will certainly be asked back again).
