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!
One owner from new. A real rarity! This very original and sound example has had just the single owner from new and has covered only 58,000 kilometres from new, just 36,000 miles!
Not immaculate, of course after all these years, but, more importantly, very sound.
We will now restore the van mechanically and bodily, paint, UK register and MOT it. Alternatively, you can buy at any stage of the process, or, if you are quick, as is now.
Call us for pricing alternatives. Once finished, it will be around £24,000.
This lovely original van is currently undergoing a total rebuild to its body which is including many new panels, after which it will be repainted and then we will carry out a full mechanical restoration.
This will not be far off a new Citroen HY van!
At this stage, you can decide exterior colour and final specification.

Production of the Citroen H van ran from 1948 until 1981, so this is one of the very final H vans built. The van is fitted with a large side opening which includes a drop down shelf allowing excellent visibility to the inside.

We are also able to fit this van out inside to your design - see the 'Gallery' page of our website for some ideas. As is, £22,000.
Perfect Van. We (and you!) will find it nigh on impossible to find a better Citroen H van than this. This is a fully restored (mechanically and bodily) sound original van that we found with a long term owner in Southern France. Repainted in its original Gris Matinal grey, this van is one of the last built (production finished in 1981) and is therefore to the very final specification.
A really lovely van that we can convert inside to your exact specification or you can simply enjoy as is. The van is UK registered and MOT tested. Really lovely - £24,000 plus VAT.
Best in the world? How can I start with this beauty? Perfect? Stunning? Just words, but you will not disagree when you see it. Found as a one owner from new vehicle in France with its original owner. Although we have totally restored the van bodily and mechanically, no welding was required and no new panels!
The van has been totally repainted inside and out in its original Citroen Gris Metallise, mechanically restored in our workshop, UK registered and finally, MOT tested.
As ever, we can convert this to your exact needs and specification. You will never find a nicer, more original example. £28,500.
Long Wheel Base. Another super rare find, especially in this condition. The long vans are getting very hard to find now, and have always been hard to find in good condition as few people had big enough garages to keep them under cover. Not so this one owner beauty! The body and underside are both rock solid and the side panels are amazingly straight and free from dents. We will repair the small parking damage at the rear each side, restore the mechanics and repaint your choice of colour. We fit new seats, new tyres, new exhaust, new radiator, new brakes etc etc.
Once completed, we can then fit out to your personal requirements inside - see our 'Gallery' page for previous examples. We will even do the signwriting for you!
Van itself, restored, painted, UK registered and MOT tested, £29,700.
Petrol. Totally restored. 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. Currently wearing removable signwriting as it was used for a recent film, but this will be removed.Lovely. £21,760 plus VAT.
Petrol. Rare extended length model. Well, well well, how special is this? We have used pictures from how we discovered this beauty in the Seine-et-Marne region, not far from Paris.
The van is beautifully original and still in its original paint. The body is amazingly sound and straight and it will form a really superb base for your special catering/promotion/camper van.
Because of its extra length, these vans are always much in demand. We will put it through our normal mechanical and body restoration process and convert the inside, if you wish, to your own wishes. The restored van will be £23,600 plus VAT, painted your colour.
Petrol. This van was converted for Pizza sales around two years ago for a local pub. It is fitted with a large Bushman wood burning oven, counters, basins, lighting etc.
The van runs and drives but is not currently MOT tested or UK registered as it was only used on private land. We can put it through our workshop, carry out MOT and UK register it if required.

The van has never been used commercially and is immaculate inside and repainted outside. The oven alone cost £8000! Only £32,400
A totally amazing find. Just one owner and 20,000 miles from new, this totally solid and original van was parked up in a barn in France for many years when the cylinder head gasket blew.
We found it, repatriated it to the UK and gave it a full mechanical restoration in our workshop. The engine has been rebuilt with new pistons, liners and bearings. The cylinder head has been machined, four new tyres have been fitted, all new brakes, a full stainless steel exhaust system fitted and, finally, a new MOT and UK registration.
Although the body is rust free and solid and has its original mellowed paint, it also has some original and typical (!) French dents!
You can drive away in it as it is now for just £20,000 plus VAT or we can repaint it your colour and fit it out inside to your specification.
Petrol. An unusual yet much sought after type of Citroen H van camper. This beauty is approximately one metre longer than a standard H van, making it ideal for fitting large Pizza ovens (for example) or for any use (if you don't want it as a camper, of course!) where a number of appliances are fitted or you wish to have multiple staff inside.
The van will shortly be going through our workshop for a full mechanical restoration, after which it can be taken away as it is, or we can paint it your colour and fit it out to your specification.
Price will depend upon your specification and instructions.
This very sound and original van, has just arrived from France to join our collection. A few minor marks and bumps, yes, but believed to be a single owner vehicle (previous owner certainly owned it in 1984).
We have just completed a total mechanical rebuild of this van which has included a totally rebuilt engine and gearbox, new radiator, new stainless exhaust, all new brakes, new tyres and new seats....and much more!
Now with a new MOT, we will be fitting it with conventional three piece rear doors and an opening side hatch....after that, it is up to you to choose the colour and what goes inside.
Final price depends upon your specification.

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 £24,000 + 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.
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.

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!

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. THIS VAN IS BEING SOLD AT THE HISTORICS AUCTION AT MERCEDES BENZ WORLD ON 25TH NOVEMBER 2017.
