CITROEN: 1968 H
This is the standard cattle van version of the H, showing that fitting custom bodywork behind the cabin area was no problem. The advised maximum cargo area dimensions were 4.44 metre internal length and 17.80 m2 cargo space.
The scheme below shows the standard dimensions of the H in millimetres.
Although the H actually was a very crude design it was and still is very much loved. A number of H vans are still on the road on a regular basis, carefully maintained by their owners who mostly have converted their H to campers. The H was succeeded by the H15/25 in the mid seventies, a much more "normal" design.
