xxxx DF plates issued July 62 - Aug 63 and I think 7572 would have been well into 1963. Broadspeed link is not the manufacturer - they did various sporty Mini conversions in the 1960s, but not van bodies; since then they have become specialist Mini restorers and sourcing unusual versions for export, particularly to Japan - the photo on their website would be one they found and possibly restored, not one they built. There were many conversions for Minivans (and Bedford HA and Anglia vans) in the 1960s - I don't know much about this topic, but most were commissioned by ice-cream firms to their own individual fleet specifications (eg Walls, Tonibell, Mr Whippee etc). While burger vans were also probably built, my guess is that this could be a former ice-cream van from one of the big fleets, sold off and bought by a local hot dog seller.

BTW vans like this were usually based on the pickup rather than the van, as the back of the pickup's body was vertical. You can see a virtually identical burger van in the link I gave above, together with some details of the difference between it and ice-cream vans.

Agree this is a pickup. chris40's link an amazing site for detailed pickup info. Forum topic on icecream and catering conversions is Link to "www.minipickup.org" - several photos which look v similar to this one, some with near-identical colours (including a 1972 scrapyard example and an undated period photo), but no specific identification for maker etc. The xxxx DF series was Gloucestershire - would be interesting if any of the ice-cream fleets were Gloucester-based, though agree it looks as if burger/hot dog conversions were also a distinct activity in parallel.
