Citroën H-Van- 1972

Citroën H-Van- 1972

The H-Van was simple to maintain, cheap to run, and durable, enabling the French to have their goods to market after WWII. Its distinctive corrugated sheet metal bodywork was sturdy and light, and the 2-liter engine was virtually indestructible. The van was roomy and offered ample access – one sliding door on the side and a back door which opened in three parts. The back entrance was designed with two doors on the bottom that opened to the sides and one door on the top that opened upward. This allowed for transporting cargo that was longer than the van. The front seat is positioned high to allow excellent outward vision. It has a load capacity of 3,500 pounds.
