Economy with modelling. Mettoy, who set up the Corgi brand, re-used the two-ton delivery truck model that had previously been sold as a Co-op pop delivery van as the Karrier Bantam 2 Tonner. Now the cab is re-used here with the Smiths mobile shop back-body to create the Mobile Shop, The cast base is a bit of a give-away, the moulded prop shaft is very similar to the old Mettoy bottle float. There's more mileage yet to be had from this old war horse. Its last outing is in 1963 as the chippy van after being used as a mobile butcher's shop and a circus ticket office.

In the Hygienic Mobile Shop' version the Smiths 1 Ton Van body on the Karrier Bantam was in the Corgi range from 1957 to 1962. There are no recorded variations.
