Beautiful restored HY Pick Up. Equipped with a new hood, loading space professionally finished and equipped with benches that can easily accommodate 8 people. The car drives, shifts and brakes properly and can be used for many purposes. The Citroën H Van or Citroën HY is a van that was produced between 1947 and 1982.
With its characteristic 'corrugated sheet body', the HY was a well-known appearance in Europe. This car remained virtually unchanged in production for no less than 34 years, an absolute record for a van. A total of 475,000 copies were built. The heavier version with a higher payload was called 'HZ'. The practical cargo space was used for all kinds of purposes, including the transport of agricultural goods, up to the use for patient transport. The design requirements of the HY were somewhat similar to those of a 2CV: front-wheel drive, low fuel consumption and good road holding. The first blueprints of this car were already on the work table during the Second World War, but the first prototype only rolled off the production line after 1945.
The design of the HY is not based on the unibody construction. The wish was a chassis with superstructure. All technology was concentrated in the front of the car (engine, gearbox and drive). The advantage of this is that a HY can be extended quite easily by sawing the car in half just behind the cabin, so to speak, only the chassis beams and the brake lines need to be extended.
The HY has appeared in many hundreds of variants. As a camper, catering sales car, pick-up, horse transporter, etc. In Belgium, the HY was a favorite as a mobile chip shop...
Between 1963 and 1970 the HY was also assembled in the Netherlands, at Citroën Nederland at the Stadionplein in Amsterdam. Production was about 400 cars per year.
