Citroën H Van, Type H, H-Type or HY


This is a photo of a Citroën H Van, Type H, H-Type or HY was a light truck (or delivery van) produced by the French car maker Citroën between 1947 and 1981. It was developed as a simple front wheel driven van after World War II. A total of 473,289 were produced in 34 years in factories in France and Belgium. Most of them were sold in France, Belgium and The Netherlands.
The engine, gear box and many smaller parts are well known from other Citroën models: engine and gearbox are nearly the same as in the Traction Avant and later the DS, only mounted with the engine to front. Head lights and speedometer were identical to the 2CV for a long time.

I had a large model of one of these as a kid, with sliding doors. Great for stuffing armies of little soldiers into!
