Posies History

If Only She Could Talk!

Posies is a classic 1968 air-cooled VW Single Cab truck that was manufactured in Germany.

From what we know she spent some time in Alabama, as she had verbiage on her doors pre-restoration that said “Open Bible Mission” out of Florala, AL. (We are still working this end of things!) She also had roots to St. Petersburg prior to being sold to a gentleman named Mick from SC in 2012. He sold her in 2015, then she sold to another person (unknown), then sold again to Chad from NC where he did a full restoration. He sold her in 2017 to the original founder of Posies Flower Truck, Stephanie Newton, who retrofitted and converted her into the flower truck we know and love today. On November 7, 2017 Posies Flower Truck hit the streets of Tampa Bay once again now as a flower truck.

In May of 2021 Stephanie and David Frank bought the business from Newton. Of course there is a large gap of years unaccounted for from 1968 to 2012 but we are continuing to research as much of her history we can. If only she could talk!
