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!

So original, such patina, so lovely!
OK, so I view it as an enthusiast, whereas you may not see what we see......in that case, we can paint it for you!
This lovely van had been asleep in a French barn for many years until we awoke it earlier this year. Amazingly, it is still wearing its original paint....and, of course, a few original French dents.
But, importantly, no rust. We have been using this van ourselves extensively recently following it's complete mechanical restoration, and can vouch for how well it runs and drives. As usual, it has new brakes, tyres, radiator, stainless exhaust system, new seats etc.
Buy as is to have the fashionable look that everyone loves for just £18777 plus VAT. Alternatively, we can fit it out inside for you and paint it any colour you wish.



Believe it or not, this beautiful original van had been locked away for over 30 years!
It took some serious manoevering to release it from its incarceration, but succeed we did.
And it was worth it. Original paint and original dents, but solid.
We have carried out a total mechanical restoration including brakes, engine, tyres, exhaust, radiator, seats etc.
It is now MOT tested (as all our vans are) and will be UK registered in days.

As usual we can paint it, fit it out....or whatever!


1973 Very rare high top PETROL

If you are critical, you could describe this one as scruffy......even I will accept that.
But, now that this van has passed through our workshop and had a full mechanical rebuild, it will shortly go to the bodyshop for body repairs and paint.
When finished, it will look superb and will have lots of headroom for tall chefs or baby giraffes.
As usual with our renovations, this van has new tyres, new brakes, new radiator, new stainless exhaust etc.
Very unusual van - don't miss it.
We can sell as is, with new MOT for just £15000 or with fresh body and new paint, £24,400.




Recently owned by our local council, this superb bus drives very nicely and has masses of space inside. The passenger seats have been removed, so this van would make an amazing camper or catering, promotional vehicle.
Whilst we have had it, the MOT has expired though it still drives very well. Because of this, we will sell for just £3500.
If nothing else, you could use it as a superb shed !! It really is too good for that though.

Fully restored, immaculate. Petrol.

We rebuilt this incredibly solid and original van to as near perfection as is possible - primarily to prove how superbly we can restore
these beautiful vans! Over £10,000 was spent just on perfecting and painting the body, both inside and out! Do not compare this van to
one that you might find on Ebay or similar websites. This van is without doubt the best and most correct H van currently for sale.

1969 Citroen HY

Alternatively, we can restore or part restore it for you.
For sale as is for just £12,000.

1979 Citroen HY - SOLD

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.


1972 Citroen HY SOLD

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.


1962 Citroen HY SOLD

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.


1969 Citroen HY SOLD

Petrol. Totally restored. 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. Currently wearing removable signwriting as it was used for a recent film, but this will be removed.Lovely. £21,760 plus VAT.


1971 Citroen HY

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.


1975 Pizza catering SOLD

HY Extended - SOLD

Petrol. An unusual yet much sought after type of Citroen H van camper.

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.

1979 Citroen HY - quite superb!


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.


1966 Citroen HY -SOLD


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.
