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!

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.”

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.

About the Citroen H Van

The HY van was used as a delivery van and still serves the same great purpose for business owners today.  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.  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.  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.

We have a few Citroen H vans for sale and can be customized to your liking.  If you are interested in purchasing the van give us a call at 732-279-6453.
