Check out our latest acquisition that will be arriving at our restoration facility in Toms River soon!Â This is a classic Citroen HY delivery van, in its original, un-restored condition. These are very hard to find but very quick to sell!Â The Citroen HY van was only in production for about 34 years, and during that time, a limited stock of inventory was produced.
The HY van was used as a delivery van and still serves the same great purpose for business owners today.Â This van is especially great for restaurant owners or for food delivery businesses that need the added cargo room and also want to make a statement.Â We can customize the van for your company. They make GREAT promotional vehicles for business.
Technical Features of the Citroen HY Van
Engine and gearbox are nearly the same as in the Traction Avant and later the DS, only mounted with the engine to front. Â Headlights and speedometer were identical to the 2CV for a long time.
The distinctive corrugated or ‘rippled’ swaged body work was inspired by German Junkers (Aircraft) of the 1930s, the ribs added strength without adding weight, and needed only simple, low cost press tools. The flat body panels were braced on their reverse side by ‘top hat’ box sections, at right angles to the ribs.
The HY van is for sale, but wonâ€™t be for long. The van can be customized to the new ownerâ€™s liking.Â If you are interested in purchasing the van, you must act quickly.Â Give us a call at 732-279-6453.
