Citroen H Van Makes Cameo Appearance in ABC Pan Am Show

Pan Am, yes the airline Pan Am, is coming to a TV near you and guess what….???  One of our customized Citroen H vans has made a cameo appearance for the filming for the preliminary episode.  Yes, a EuroCar Imports Citroen H van has been cast to play a bread truck set on the streets of Rome for the filming of the new ABC pilot entitled, Pan Am.

Now, if you’re old enough to know what a Citroen H van is, you’re old enough to know what Pan Am is.  ABC has given the airlines a new chance at life with its new pilot series that follows the debonaire pilots and dynamic stewardesses of the 1950s and 1960s.

Filming for Pan Am

Our Citroen H van made its starring film debut last month.  We traveled to the streets of Greenwich Village NYC at the wee hours of 5am and were in ‘bread truck character’ until about 7pm!!!  An actor’s job is so underestimated!  Now, if you look closely at the photos below, you can see our H van loaded with bread. Yes, that’s us, the bread truck! Check us out!

Citroen Car Parts: Electronic Ignitions

We now stock electronic ignitions for the Citroen Traction, Citroen DS and Citroen H Van.  Of course, we always have the electronic ignitions in stock at all times for the Citroen 2CV.

citroen car partsEach ignition is specifically targeted for either the Traction, DS or H Van. With a simple switch you can easily choose the advance-curve that was specified for your engine. This ignition contains all the curves for carbureted engines as originally specified by Citroen, for cars after July 1959.

Two curves are dedicated to the Traction-Avant engines, the ‘Perfo’ and the ’11D’.

For the ‘H’-van there are two advance-curves too, both for the ‘H78’-engine. One of these has a so-called ‘rev-limiter’, to prevent unwanted engine-damage.

Eurocar Imports is your one stop shop for Citroen parts, Citroen car sales and Citroen car maintenance.  Please give us a call at 732-279-6453 and we can help you determine what you need for your Citroen.

Installation is simple, but we also do maintenance and repair work on-site at Eurocar.  We work with cars from all over the country as well as Canada.

Citroen Ripple Truckette Restoration

We are restoring a fantastic 60’s Ripple Truckette for a customer.

The Ripple Bonnet was first introduced in 1960, when the Citroen 2CV was updated. In particular the corrugated Citroën H Van style “ripple bonnet” of convex swages was replaced (except for the Sahara), with one using six larger concave swages.

These genuine Ripples are very rare in Europe and worth a considerable amount of money worldwide. This is a great chance to own a real piece of history.

This ripple is getting 12 volt electrics/602cc engine with disc brake gearbox and many more fine extras.
