Donated to the Museum in March 2002 by the Co-op, this vehicle dates from 1965 and is registered FDX 346D. It was in regular use until the Summer of 2001, when the last two rounds were withdrawn. Originally there were over 40 green grocery carts/rounds in the Ipswich area, and apart from milk, were the last regular 'door to door' service offered by the Co-op.

In the past, the Co-op has offered green grocery, butchery, bakery and mobile shop services. Along with this vehicle, EPV 228D and FDX 621D were also donated to the Museum, being the last three owned by the Co-op.
