Citroen H Van 1947-1981 by snoopybooboo

Citroen H Van 1947-1981

Not quite the nice paintwork as the Cadillac. This a left hand drive from the early 1960's and not sold in the UK as a right hand drive. In 1964 they done away with the spit screen. But there is something about this I like.
A super find with a great rusty finish.

It seems a van so rusty looking can be seen on the road, normally they are found in barns.

They are very popular here in France but in better condition than this one!
Having driven a 2CV for 25years I recognise the sound of the engine before spotting the vehicle. Happy days.
