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.
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.”
Citroen Cars for Sale
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.
