From H Van to Food Truck, Citroen Vans Do It All

Noel Slade, an expert vintage car mechanic specializing in the restoration and rebuilding of vintage Citroen cars, says business is booming with inquiries from companies that want to incorporate the Citroen H Van into their mobile business.  Busy with requests to restore and rebuild vintage H vans, Slade says this old delivery truck from France is making a huge comeback with businesses in the US.  Slade owns Eurocar Imports in Toms River, NJ.

Vintage H van pre-restoration

Designed as a light delivery truck in France from 1947-1981, the H van was popular among small business owners that delivered breads and baked goods.  As of late, the H van’s unique look and convenient capabilities has gained widespread attention of business owners that want their brand to stand out in the crowd.

According to Slade, most of his H van customers are food service owners. “We are recreating the H van into a modern food service truck,” explains Slade.  “We are working on an H Van right now that is getting a new stainless steel sink, refrigerator, full-sized generator…and more. When it’s done it will be serving up fresh food on the streets of San Francisco.”

He imports the vintage H vans from France and sells them to Citroen enthusiasts as well as businesses.  At his restoration body shop in Toms River, he shows off an impressive collection of Citroen cars, vans and truckettes.  Some of the most unique Citroen cars can be seen on his property and many are for sale.

Slade has dedicated more than a decade to breathing new life into worn down Citroen cars.  His best seller- the Citroen 2CV- is sought after by businesses, vintage car enthusiasts and modern consumers looking to cruise around in a historically good looking car that is known to sip fuel better than any modern day hybrid.  A vintage Citroen 2CV can earn up to 40 miles per gallon around town and up to 50 miles per gallon on the highway.

Eurocar Imports is an exclusive facility in the entire Northeast offering a one-stop shop for Citroen enthusiasts.  From parts to service, restorations to rebuilds, Eurocar Imports caters to a distinct group of clientele with discriminating taste.

Citroen Acadiane Being Fully Rebuilt by Eurocar

It’s not too common that we have a Citroen Acadiane in our shop to work on.  These small, commercial vehicles are so hard to come by, and you can see why.  They are amazing to look out, even better to drive or own!  Citroen only produced the Acadiane from 1978-1987 and there were only about 250,000 made. We were able to supply this Acadiane for one of our very good customers who also ordered a Citroen 2CV from us last year.

Now that the Acadiane is here, of course we are going to completely transform this truck into a gorgeous vehicle that runs even better than it looks!

This is such a cool truck, we love when we have the opportunity to work on one and upgrade it too!
