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!

A fantastic basis for a really large H van conversion - camper, catering or promotion van. We put this beauty into dry storage nearly four years ago and have been too busy to get to it so far!
When we purchased it, it was a running van, but if putting back on the road it will need a mechanical restoration as it has been standing for so long. Alternatively, it could be trailered or used as a static van.

A very rare variant of the Citroen H family, and even better, it is as sound as a rock! Relatively few long wheel bas H vans were ever built, and as they are longer than the average garage, they tended to be left outside in the elements, sadly resulting in lots of body rot. This one, however, appears to have had just had a single owner and was put into a barn many years ago with a minor mechanical ailment. That is where it was discovered recently, covered in thick dust and with a couple of dents, but absolutely solid. We will give it a full mechanical restoration and a new MOT, and then it is up to you - we will paint it, fit it out inside, export it, you name it. Mechanically restored and with new MOT, just £24,400 plus VAT.
One thing we can say about this one - you will never find another!

Long wheel bas and with a high top, plus a balcony on the back...the possibilities are endless. An amazing camper perhaps or a superb drinks bar? Alternatively, plenty of room for lots of catering equipment inside.You name it, we'll build it. Alternatively, buy it from us with full mechanical restoration and fit it out inside yourself.
A super solid van with endless possibilities. Price depends upon how you want it - call us.

A really lovely van, fresh from the South of France.The van has a superb patina of age and sun, but it's main structure is actually very sound.

This would be a lovely van for anyone who can convert their own van or who simply wants a van to look this way, original and unmolested.
Petrol Quite magnificent
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!

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.We can fit out this beauty to you specification so that you will never go unnoticed! - Cheap at just £23,500.

We will fit the van out inside to your exact specification (see our 'Gallery' page for ideas) or you can buy it and fit it out yourself. £19,500 plus VAT.
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. £14,880
Now, here is something rather special. This is a one owner, split screen van. 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.
We have now totally rebuilt this van mechanically with fully rebuilt late type petrol engine, reconditioned gearbox, new brakes, new seats, new radiator etc.
We can now paint the van your chosen colour and fit it out for anything you care to dream up.
Ready to go, superb split screen but with late mechanics.
New MOT. £22,000 plus vat painted your colour.
