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!

Catering / Promotion Van. Just reaching completion in our workshops, this superb long wheel base HY van. Initially this van was sand blasted to totally clean the metal, any panels that required changing were replaced and it was then repainted. The engine is being fully rebuilt, new radiator, new lights, tyres and seats.
These long vans are very hard to find in really sound condition and this is a beauty. As with all our vans, it will come to you with new MOT.

For catering or promotion. This beauty came from a market gardener in La Champenoise. It had spent all its life in that area and appears to have had just the single owner. Bought by us as a sound van, we have totally restored it mechanically and bodily, painted in the original Citroen grey, and had it MOT tested. After that, we have fitted a side opening hatch and non slip flooring inside. It is now all set for you to fit out inside, or we can do it to your specification. A lovely sound example. £19,760. No VAT on this van.
Here is something really special (though aren't they all?).

Quite lovely. We can convert to whatever you wish (catering van, camper etc) or keep it as is.Lovely. £23,760 plus VAT.
One of the very last H vans built, this one was converted with a wood fired Pizza oven, stainless steel counters , side opening, basins, cupboards, lighting etc. around two years ago. Ready for work, this lovely van has just been serviced and MOT tested and is available at far less than it cost (£40K+) to build. You can buy as it is or we can add any extra equipment or change the colour to your own choice. Just £28,780 as is.
This is another of the vans that we totally restored for our museum. As found, this was a single owner H van that we purchased from the estate of the sole owner. The owner used this as his mobile sales outlet - he manufactured and sold horse saddles.
The body was perfect with no rust whatever - during the restoration and repaint, not a single panel has been replaced. The body shell was totally stripped and repainted in the original Gris Metallise Citroen colour inside and out at a cost of more than £5000 for the paint alone!). At this point, we can finish this van to your exact specification or you can keep it exactly as standard. You will never find a better H van bodyshell - anywhere!
£26,340 - no VAT on this beautiful example.
Newly restored and ready to be finished to your own specification. Currently fitted with a diesel engine or we can convert to a petrol engine if you prefer.

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.
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.
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.
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. £17,880
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'.
