Remember that feeling when you saw an ice cream truck as a kid?

… I’m bringing it back.

I bought an old truck that was rusting away in the salty air of the Gold Coast in March 2015.

Launching a crowd funding campaign in late Nov 2016 to finance the final part of the restoration and refit of Grace (don’t know where the name came from) and get her out serving scoop ice cream on the streets of Melbourne for Summer.

Want a vintage ice cream truck rolling up at your wedding, office or next event? Follow Grace’s road from rusting to restored.

The campaign will allow you to book the truck for events at a pre launch discounted rate.

I won’t spam or share your email or sell it… you get the picture.


I’m Scott.
After 10 years of talking about starting an ice cream business, in 2013 I went travelling visiting ice cream shots and chasing food trucks around the world then found myself at gelato school in Italy. When I returned to Melbourne I found an old ice cream cart on eBay and had a friend help me give it a make over and started Short Batch Ice Cream Co.

In just the first two seasons the retro ice cream cart has been booked for hundreds of weddings, birthday parties, office surprises and corporate events. Grace will be a great addition for these gigs as well as TV, film and fashion shoots.

See the Grace page on the Short Batch ice cream cart site.

On insta we’re posting pics of the restoration progress amongst shots of the great retro ice cream trucks of the world.
And on my personal snap chat you can follow the daily (nightly) trials and tribulations of us putting  Grace back together:

Here are some updates on Grace’s progress: the full hose, the grey stage and … crowdfunding video .
