ODOMETER
1950 Citroën HY Panelvan

The Citroën HY panel van is one of the most iconic French commercial vehicles ever built. It was first introduced in 1947 and remained in production with limited design changes until 1981, giving it one of the longest production runs in European automotive history. Mechanically uncomplicated, supremely reliable and eminently usable, the HY remains in strong demand even to this day. The HY van offered here is an exceptionally rare original and unrestored example that is offered with its original, single-letter Parisian license plate and in its original ‘Café San Rivo’ paintwork and livery. Believed to have been used as a publicity van for the French coffee brand, it is accompanied by a charming 1950s advertisement, showing the vehicle following several cyclists in a race, perhaps the Tour de France. Hugely original, the van includes a rare dashboard-mounted clock and three-spoke steering wheel. The owner states that the car runs but has not been driven any distance in some time. With original and unrestored HY vans in good condition becoming harder and harder to find and 1950 being a hugely sought-after model year, the opportunity to own such an example must not be overlooked. • Exemplaire en état d'origine, non restauré • Livrée "Café San Rivo" d’origine • Une pièce amusante à ajouter à toute collection de voitures françaises Le Citroën type H est un des véhicules utilitaires français les plus emblématiques qui soit. Présenté en 1947, il est resté en production jusqu'en 1981 et n'a pratiquement pas changé de forme, ce qui constitue l'une des durées de production les plus longues de l'histoire de l'automobile européenne. Mécaniquement simple, très robuste et extrêmement polyvalent, le type H est très recherché encore aujourd'hui. Le type H proposé ici est un très rare exemplaire en état d'origine non restauré, proposé avec ses plaques d'immatriculation de Paris, à une seule lettre, et sa livrée d'origine aux couleurs du "Café San Rivo". Probablement utilisé comme véhicule publicitaire pour cette marque française de café, il est accompagné de charmants buvards publicitaires qui montrent le véhicule derrière un peloton de cyclistes en course, peut-être au Tour de France Cycliste. Ce véhicule en état d'origine non touché comporte une rare horloge de tableau de bord et un volant à deux branches. Selon le propriétaire, le véhicule fonctionne mais n'a pas roulé depuis un moment. Les fourgons type H non restaurés et en bon état étant de plus en plus difficiles à trouver, et le modèle 1950 faisant partie des plus recherchés, l'opportunité d'acquérir une telle pièce ne doit pas être sous-estimée.
