Citroen H Van Made Over to Cook and Sell Empanadas on Streets of San Fran

It’s finally done!!  We transformed a vintage Citroen H van into a full-fledged street kitchen for El Sur in San Francisco.  This H Van is originally from Auxerre, France, where it was used as a market van selling vintage clothing at farmers markets all over the Burgundy region. It was shipped to EuroCar Imports in New Jersey to be fully restored.

The H Van has the ability to cook El Sur’s famous Argentine-style empanadas and serve them up daily to hungry patrons on the streets of San Francisco.

Check out the photos of El Sur Citroen H van! It’s heading cross country to San Francisco!

 

Citroen H Van Gets New Paint

Here’s another update on the Citroen H Van.  We have a bunch at EuroCar Imports now…this is the one that will be used in LA to go back and forth to the local farmer’s markets. The owner of this Citroen H van is a restaurant owner and will use his van to pick up and deliver the best fruits and vegetables around!

Last week we showed you some updated photos of the van getting primed…now she is complete with her new color scheme…cream, silver and eggplant.

Here she is…just a few more steps to go until she is ready to roll!

Citroen H Van Being Restored at Eurocar Imports

This Citroen H van is really fun to work on.  When it’s done, it’s heading back to LA where it will be used as a delivery truck making stops between farmers markets and a local LA restaurant.

In order to accommodate carrying foods such as veggies and fruits, we are installing a new kitchen rack inside to keep everything secure.  Also performing all bodywork and finishing off with a fresh coat of paint.  We will post updated photos as soon as it’s done!

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!
