H VANS FOR SALE

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!

Dutch delivery bicycle 

Person Power

Well, not exactly a van, but ideal for promoting your business! Apparently this delivered milk in Holland and we were told that it was built in the 1930's. We think that this would be superb outside a flower shop filled with samples, for example, or in a shopping mall or inside a department store as part of a display. Very rare and possibly unrepeatable, especially in this condition! For sale for little more than it cost us to get it home -£975. Quite lovely.

 

1953 Peugeot D3 

Petrol

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.

 

1980 Citroen HY van - One owner! 

Petrol


An absolutely lovely, one owner from new, Citroen HY. This is a superb, unspoilt van that we have restored thoroughly. New brakes, new seats, new tyres, new stainless steel exhaust, new tyres, new MOT.....need I go on? You can have this beauty as is, or we can convert to another of our superb catering or promotional vans. A rarity! £17,000 + VAT

 

1967 Citroen HY Fire Van - Superb! 

Petrol

Currently going through our workshop is this really lovely 1967 H van from the Fire Service. The Fire vans are always lovely because they were kept inside all their lives and serviced constantly!
This would be magnificent as a catering or promotional van. What about 'The Flaming Burger' or perhaps 'Hot Food'?! Sorry for that, the imagination plays up sometimes! This van is still in its original paint and we are currently rebuilding the brakes and getting it MOT tested. Absolutely no rot on this beauty! Unrepeatable at £18,000 plus VAT.

 

1964 Citroen HY LWB High Top 

Petrol Catering Van

A most unusual and superb find. This lovely van is 6.7 metres long (a standard 'H' is 4.2m long) and has increased headroom inside. It is a split screen, early style van and is totally solid. We have reconditioned this van and it is fitted with counters, opening side, basins, cooker and fridge. Masses of space left inside for all of your equipment and stock. These vans were very rarely built this long, and this one benefits from being built of aluminium at the rear. This van would be fabulous for festivals and big events as 7 or 8 people could work in it in plenty of space. Brand new conversion, just built, never been used. This is a unique opportunity at much less than it would cost to repeat. £35,200

 

1977 Citroen HY Extended Length 

Petrol

Our vans are never to be confused witth some of the 'awful' things on Ebay, but even compared to the best, this is 'top drawer' stock! Where do we start? Firstly, it is the desirable and rare longer version. Second, the bodywork is mint and third, it is fully restored mechanically. It really is quite lovely and you will not find better no matter how long you take to look or how many kilometres you drive searching! THis length is specially ideal for wood fired Pizza ovens as you can have more internal length. Also great if you want to have more than two people working inside together. We can have the van fitted out, and / or repainted to your exact specification, if you wish. Literally unrepeatable! £26,450 with new MOT

1975 Citroen HY Van 

Petrol

Another superb beauty! A really clean van, currently fitted out as a camper but easy to turn into a magnificent catering or promotion van. Beautiful paintwork, straight, rust free body and restored mechanically. This really lovely Citroen H will, of course come to you with new MOT, and if you wish, painted your chosen colour or with your sign writing. If you wish, we will fit it out to your specification.

1967 Citroen HY Catering 

Petrol

This super van is ready to trade and is effectively, a ready made business. Has operated as a bagel van, but with all the equipment it has, it could make and sell many different offerings.

We imported this lovely van two years ago and restored it with new brakes etc. The van has a totally rebuilt engine and is MOT tested. Really superb value at £27,000

1973 Citroen HY 6 metre LWB 

Petrol

It is really hard to find vans this length that are solid structurally - this is just such a vehicle. Whilst needing fresh paint and a spruce up, the chassis is superb and the bodywork is sound and straight. So, why is this one so good? Simple answer is, it was converted into a camper when new so has been pampered by a private owner and has a low recorded mileage.This will make a superb wood fired Pizza van or would be a great catering van for festivals where you need 6 or seven staff to have room to operate We can sell as is or fully restored and fitted out inside.

 

Citroen H van - Shed or trailer?  

Petrol

We rarely give up on a van, but sadly this one is the exception! Chop off the front and build a trailer for your H van, or leave as is and use as your garden shed................or perhaps a garden ornament!
Please save it from being scrapped! ONLY £1000.

 

1969 Citroen HY van 

Petrol

According to the French registration document this is a one owner van - it certainly still has the supplier's sticker still on it! Although it has the lovely surface rust look, it is basically quite sound and will make a super van when completed.
This beauty can be purchased for £5000 as is or we will eventually restore it and it will then come in to the £18 - £20000 bracket.

 

1979 Citroen HY pick up 

Petrol

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

 

Citroen Catering Vans 

Petrol and Diesel

We are learning, which is good for you, but usually costs us plenty! It has taken some time for it to sink in, for we are not as young as we were...but, it is now clear that every catering conversion is different. Maybe only in a small way, or maybe in a big way, but all of you, understandably, want your H van tailored exactly to your needs. So, us trying to do a 'standard' fit out, does not make sense. We've learnt - we've stopped!
This is the clever bit. We have purchased a number of really good, sound Citroen H vans, which we are restoring bodily and mechanically and fitting opening side hatches (these were never fitted by Citroen in period).
So, if you want a catering van, we have a good sound van waiting for you to decide it's colour and interior - or take it away and fit it out yourself.
Simple? We think so!

 

1961 Citroen HY Pick up 

Petrol

A lovely, sound, original, split screen Citroen HY pick up truck. We can build a catering van body onto this at your chosen height and length. Alternatively, these pick up trucks are most unusual and great fun just as they are or for promotional use; they make super rustic fruit or vegetable vans for any ad or promo. Hard to find such sound, original condition.
Runs and drives, as is, £11,995, or we will MOT and convert for you.

 

1981 Citroen HY 

Petrol

This beauty is one of the last H vans built as 1981 was the final year of production for these iconic vans. It is incredibly straight down the sides and very sound underneath, which is the important part of all vans! We will restore it mechanically and paint it your colour - if you wish, we will fit it out to your exact specification. Let us know what you want your van to do for you. Price, as usual, dependent on specification, but this is a really super base from which to start.

 

1977 Citroen HY Fire van 

Petrol

As rare as you will ever find - this beautiful H van has only covered a genuine 18,000km (15,000 miles) from new. The joy of the Fire vans is that they were always maintained to a very high standard and, of course, did minimal mileage.
It is as solid and immaculate an H van as you will ever find anywhere. 'Blues and twos' still working! I really want to keep this beauty so paid dear to get it - it was withdrawn from a French auction for us! So, it is not cheap and no offers will be taken. If you wish to buy this rarity, it is £23,400 with new MOT.

 

1957 Citroen H 'Cafe Gilbert' van 

Petrol


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.

 

1957 Citroen H van 

Petrol

Here is something different for you to consider. A lovely sound early split screen H van which runs and drives but has not been restored in any way yet. As usual, we will restore this van to your full specification and have it fully fitted out inside if you wish.
Some of the early vans were fitted from new with canvas sides, so easy to fit an opening side hatch or simply roll up the canvas as the French did in period. So much character!
You can buy this beauty, as is, for just £6500 or we will convert and restore it fully for you.

 

1957 Citroen H market/catering van 

Petrol

OMG, as my daughter would still say (much to our chagrin!). A really lovely early, split screen van. This beauty was fitted with side opening in period, and as such, is a lovely historical piece. We will rebuild this beauty to your specification and colour. A really sound example as found, but we will rebuild the engine, brakes, cooling system, seats etc. as usual.
Very unusual to find such a sound early van that has never been molested bodily or mechanically - totally original and lovely.
Yet again, I am so tempted to keep this one!

 

1961 Citroen HY Split screen 

Diesel

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!

 

1950's Citroen H van, Split Screen

Petrol

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'.

1962 Citroen HY Betaillere Horsebox

Petrol.

A lovely early split screen van from Toulon on the French south coast. We are normally very wary of these as the rear load floor can be in a poor condition, but this van is absolutely solid throughout and in superb condition.


The bodywork is currently in primer and ready to be painted and the woodwork is sound, ready for a fresh coat of varnish. We are happy to paint it to your own colour or you may prefer to buy as is and finish yourself.


The van is higher inside than standard and very slightly longer so would convert to a really super camper or would also make a superb wood fired Pizza van.
