In our desire to acquire the best possible Citroen HY and HZ vans, H VAN WORLD has a specialist team based near Antibes in the
South of France. Generally speaking, the further south one travels in France, the more rust free the van that you can find. But they are
never easy to locate! France is a vast country, and we generally find our vans in the most remote places. Each one has to then be
transported back to the UK and examined in detail before being offered for sale. Despite our expertise and selection process however,
you must remember that every H van is over 30 years old, and some are as mature as 60! So, even we can’t guarantee a vehicle of
that age, but you can at least rely on our extensive knowledge to avoid the worst pitfalls. We try to stock a complete selection of vans
from restoration projects to the most immaculate vans, and ranging in age from the 1950’s to the final production in 1981.We always try
to keep a varied stock, including varying lengths, heights and body styles. If we do not currently have what you are after, ask us to
locate it for you. If anyone can, H VAN WORLD can!

We got our MD to collect this van himself to remind him how big France is. It did the trick! To prove the point, we have illustrated it with one picture of this beauty in France (just after the transaction had been completed) and one when it was in neutral ground under the English Channel courtesy of Euro Tunnel 'Le Shuttle'.

This lovely long wheel base van is a rare survivor in this sound and original condition. How has it survived - because it was bought new by the Pompier - the Fire Brigade, and therefore they were totally pampered! Kept inside, serviced at all times and maintained regardless of cost - they had to be reliable.
You can purchase this van as is but mechanically restored and MOT tested for £23,750 plus VAT or we will paint it your colour and fit it out to whatever you can dream up!
A very rare Citroen H van model and even rarer in this super sound and original condition.
The high roof vans are perfect for anyone over 6ft tall and the long wheel base vans are essential if you have a lot of equipment to fit in to your catering van.
This van really is a very unusual find - few were built and most have rusted away as they did not fit in the average garage. Not to be missed.
Available as is with new MOT for £26,000 or we can paint and fit out to your exact specification.

A lovely original H van that is all ready and waiting for a catering or promotional conversion. The van has a very sound chassis and is shortly to enter our workshop for a full mechanical and body restoration.
These vans have usually carried animals and thus have rotten floors, but this hasn't and doesn't! Sound as a pound and a beauty in the making! The big advantage of this style of H van is that it has extra headroom in the back - if you are over 6ft tall, this van is for you! Price dependent upon specification. Call for details.
Fresh out of our paintshop and on its way to be re-fitted in our workshop next - then off to be MOT tested.
This is one of the rare H vans that was fitted with a sliding door on either side - this means that when we convert this beauty, we can put the side opening on either side. The internal size is exactly as normal.
This van is very sound and ideal for private buyers as it does not have to have VAT added. £20,000.
Do you love Citroen H vans but want something different? Perhaps this is the answer. Also, if you need a van to get started immediately, this good be your saviour! A lovely Peugeot D3 van, converted recently to a high standard - fully lined walls and ceiling, stainless counters, non slip floor, lighting basins, fridge etc. Some small areas to improve on the van, but MOT tested and ready to go.
The exterior has been 'wrapped' to give it a lovely pastel period colour scheme. This van is not owned by us but we have it at our premises for viewing. £20,000 ONO
Yes, I agree that this one looks a little sad at the moment. But it has passed our strict buying criteria, which means that it has a good sound chassis and floor. The van runs and drives but is as found, so no MOT yet. The body will need a few new panels (which we have in stock) and it needs going through mechanically, but is a great basis for a lovely van. You may buy this van as is, or we will give it a total restoration and repaint in any colour you wish! As is, now, £9240 + VAT.
Ideal Pizza conversion. In period, Citroen only built standard length H vans. To get a longer/taller H van, you went to buy from an approved Citroen Carrosserier (coachbuider). This meant that few longer vans were built, so few remain in a sound condition. This is one such van.
One of the very last to be built, this van has a lovely sound chassis though needs some cosmetic and mechanically refurbishment. We will be renovating this rare long wheel base van thoroughly and can paint it and fit it out to your precise specification.
A rare opportunity to have a sound long wheel base HY van. Restored and painted approx £26,000 + VAT.
A super solid, but very reasonably priced Citroen HY that is ready to be converted to your specification or used just as it is. Whenever we find a running H van which has a really superb chassis, we buy it. Sound H vans are becoming very hard to find - rotten ones are two a penny though on Ebay! You can buy this one exactly as it is with a new MOT, or we can repaint it and build a rear body on for your catering or promotional requirements. You name it, we build it! Currently the van has a tilt and new canvas cover fitted, so great as it is for just £12,000. No VAT on this van.
So hard to find now in sound condition, this is as long as most the coachbuilders built H vans. Occasionally you may find one longer, but very rarely. these are fantastic for wood fired pizza ovens as there is plenty of space inside, or for doing festivals - in vans this size, you can have 6 or 7 staff easily. Not so good for city centres, of course! This particular example is really superb, sound body and superb, strong chassis. This van has been through our workshop and is now fully MOT tested and UK registered - ready for you to fit out yourself, or we can do it for you and then paint it your colour. 'As is' with MOT £20,000 plus VAT
Where do I start with this one? Words can't describe it adequately, but the 1,064 pictures of its total restoration will ! Two hours South of Paris lurked this little beauty - a long way to go, but well worth every mile of the journey and the motorway toll fees!
Purchased from an arch enthusiast who had professionally rebuilt every part of this van and recorded every single step on his camera - the file of pictures will go to the purchaser on a memory stick. You simply will not find a better and more eye catching example of France's greatest van! Just 30,000 km from new! No VAT on this beauty as it came from a private individual. Cheap at just £24,500.
A lovely late Citroen HY van that is in its original paint and totally unmolested from new. It has been in storage for many years and will now undergo restoration in our workshop.
At this stage we can paint this beauty your colour and either fit it out inside to your specification or you can fit it out yourself - or simply keep it as a van!
Price dependent on final specification, but as a rule, a restored , painted and MOT tested van is around £20,000.
These lovely vans were Peugeot's response to Citroen's H van. Just as the H van was a lovely looking and practical van, so was the Peugeot. Unfortunately these Peugeot D3 and later D4 were only made for a very short time so very few survive today. Those that do are usually in a pretty poor state, but this is one of the few exceptions - it is as perfect as it could be. Totally solid, immaculate, and driving beautifully. We have converted these beauties to catering vans in the past, and can do so again.
It is so rare to find a really good, solid pick up these days that we just had to give this lovely example a full restoration. So, here it is! New brakes, new tyres, new cooling system, new exhaust, new (original colour) paint and, finally, a new MOT. I love it and have been using it to promote our business since it was finished - it was a big hit at a big classic car show last week!
I think that this would be brilliant to promote a business or product, but alternatively, it could have your own height/length catering unit on the back - alternatively, we will keep it! £15,265
From our own museum, we offer for sale this gorgeous Citroen H van that is totally solid but with a superb rusty patina that only vehicles from a hot, dry climate can attain. Pretty much any Citroen H book shows pictures of the Cafe Gilbert vans and this van, an early split screen, is as sound an example as you will ever find, anywhere.
We have kept this van externally as we found it, but the inside is quite different. All new brakes, rebuilt engine, new stainless steel exhaust, new hoses and radiator etc etc.
This van was displayed at 'La Vie en Bleu' at Prescott last summer, and on the Citroen Car Club stand at the NEC Classic Car Show last November. Much praised at both venues. Utterly unrepeatable. £18,300.
Now, here is something rather special. This is a one owner, split screen van, but unusually, it is the Perkins diesel engine fitted rather than the more common indenor diesel. The Perkins engine was only fitted for a few years, but this one even has a spare engine with it 'just in case'! How about that! Also really interesting, is the fact that this van was fitted with these lovely sliding glass windows from new by the French SAPA coachbuilders - this is a very rare survivor with this original conversion, but would be great for catering or ICE CREAM sales as one could serve through them. A really rare vehicle then, one owner, Perkins diesel and SAPA conversion! I doubt you will ever find another with this combination. You may buy 'as is' or we will restore and fit out as you wish. Have a chat to us if you love it as much as we do!
The early H vans had a split windscreen and some other subtle differences that make them eagerly sought after by enthusiasts of the marque. The split windscreen was replaced in 1964, so these split screen models are between 40 and 60+ years old! It is most unusual to find one without and dents or rust damage, but this is a good find. Although it has some superficial rust, it is basically very strong in all the important areas that matter structurally. The van runs and drives and can be purchased as is or at any stage of restoration. The price will obvously depend on how far we have got or to what specification you may want. Your colour choice or as is 'dans son jus'.
