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!
Long and high, static van. This van was built a few years ago at considerable cost. Fully insulated and lined out inside in stainless steel and fitted out inside with a multitude of items of cooking equipment.
Gas and electricity, two basins, stainless counters etc. This is a very comprehensively fitted out van.
Whilst it could be refitted with an engine or gearbox, the last owners operated it as a static van, and it is for that reason, that the price can be kept so low for what is capable of earning a very strong return for its purchaser.
As is, this van is priced at just £20,000
Petrol. High Top split screen
Still in its original paint, this superb van has been in the same family ownership since new. Still in its original paint and totally original, this is a super example which will make a great catering or promotional van as it has the sought after high roof rear.
The van has been through our workshop and now has 12 volt electrics with alternator, new brakes, radiator, lights, stainless steel exhaust, seats and, of course, a new MOT.
Now, we can paint it your colour and, if you wish, fit it out to your specification. As is and ready to drive away, £22,000 + VAT.
Petrol. Split screen pick up
This superb van was found in France in a amazingly sound original state. It has now been totally restored with the objective of creating the best H van pick up in existence. Engine, gearbox, brakes, radiator, you name it, all rebuilt. So good was the final result that it was displayed on the Citroen stand at the recent Classic Car Show at Birmingham's NEC, as well as the similar show in Manchester. We can build a van body on the rear, or the van could be a really superb and unusual promotional vehicle. UK registered and with new MOT, just £21,600 (just try and build one to this standard for that price!)
Petrol. Catering van, ready to trade!
Originally built by us as a promotional van for Spanish Olive Oil, this van has most recently been very successfully selling Venezualan food in London.
Although now an older build, the van is very comprehensively fitted out inside with gas and electricity, lighting, twin basins, water heater, 2 x fridges, oven, griddle, fryer, bain marie, utensils etc. etc.
The van will be supplied serviced and with new MOT. Good value at £25,000
Direct from the South of France, a beautifully kept standard length H van in rot free and damage free condition. Quite lovely, and very hard to find these days, sadly.
This beauty may seem expensive compared to some that you see on Ebay, for example, but this is in quite a different league. A sound, original van like this is most unusual.
We can sell as is with, of course, new MOT and full service, for £22,000 + VAT, or we can fit it out inside and paint it to your exact specification
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.
Long, high Citroen H vans are very hard to find, and this one already has a side opening fitted. As is, ridiculously cheap at just £13,000. Alternatively, we can restore, rebody, you name it - talk to us.
This van has been restored by its owner and needs very small finishing touches to complete. Stripped and painted, fitted with side opening hatch, new panels, new exhaust, new tyres and seats. MOT has expired but we can finish it for you and MOT test it if you wish. An excellent base vehicle for £19,000.
MOT tested and power steering! Petrol A really super Citroen H van, empty inside and ready to be fitted out inside to your specification or you can take it exactly as is.This van is literally ready to drive away, and to make it even more enjoyable, we have fitted power steering to it for you and ply lined it inside! Painted in original Citroen grey. Very good value at just £20,780
Where to begin with this? Ideally, please read no further - I want to keep it! A beautifully restored truck which would be fantastic at any classic vehicle show or even better, at Goodwood or other Historic Racing meetings. The perfect tender vehicle, or, perhaps, simply for the Ferrari enthusiast or collector. The truck is mechanically and bodily restored at huge expense with new tyres, seats, brakes, radiator etc.and even the signage is hand painted - no stickers here! Absolute gift at £19,995
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! The van was coach built for the Tour de France cycle race, later passing to the sewing machine company Singer as a demonstaration unit. 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 very sound, original Citroen HY pick up, still wearing its original paint, so that you can see how sound it is. A complete and lovely example that would make a fantastic static promotional van, catering van, bar etc. or it could be restored to perfection. As with all our vans, you can purchase the van 'as is' and play with it yourself, or we can restore and build it to your own specification. A lovely old thing and cheap at £4300 as is.
This superb example has had just the single owner from new and comes with its coachbuilder build sheet and original Citroen specification/build sheet. Most unusual to find a single owner 45 year old vehicle! Being taller inside and very slightly longer inside than a standard H van, this will make a superb catering or promotional van for the taller chef or great for a camper conversion. We will be putting this superb van through our workshop and can then sell or paint and or convert to your exact specification - see our 'Gallery' page for interior ideas. Price depends upon final specification, or as is but mechanically restored with new MOT. £21,450 plus VAT

extended length van with roof rack.
It is very hard to find these extended length vans, and especially sound examples. This van was still working in France until very recently, so has been on the road and is roadworthy.
However, that is not good enough for us, so it will be going through our workshop for a mechanical refurbishment starting with a new gearbox. Finally, a new MOT.
We can paint the van your colour and fit it out for any catering of promotional purpose. £24,540 plus VAT.
ready for catering conversion

Very, very hard to find in this condition. £25,885.

A stunning base van, not cheap as they are getting very hard to find in this condition. £23,780 plus VAT
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. The van runs and drives but is obviously not yet roadworthy or MOT tested. 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!
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.We can fit out this beauty to you specification so that you will never go unnoticed! - Cheap at just £23,500.
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. Buy as is and fit out yourself, or we can fit out the interior to your exact specification (see our 'Gallery' section for previous examples). £29,480 (No VAT).
Here is something really special (though aren't they all?). An ex French post van that we have totally rebuilt for our own museum - trouble is, we are putting more away to keep than we are putting up for sale! Time for some sanity! Fully rebuilt engine, new brakes, radiator, stainless exhaust, electronic ignition, fully restored and painted body with painted underside, totally rebuilt seats, new mirrors, new tyres, new MOT and UK registered. Quite lovely. We can convert to whatever you wish (catering van, camper etc) or keep it as is.Lovely. £23,760 plus VAT.
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. This van was originally a mini bus so has had very light use and is very solid. Body restored and repainted, new tyres, lights, and fresh paint.
You can buy as is with new MOT for £22,400 - no VAT.
This super solid example was in regular use until recently in France. It will shortly be going through our workshop for mechanical restoration following which it will be MOT tested and then painted in the purchasers colour and fitted with a pair of new seats. The roof rack is a great additional feature for something to promote your product - or this would make a superb camper van. 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, 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! A fantastic sound basis - as is £8,500
