Vintage Peugeot Food Van

12 07 2013

Here is a French panel van I saw a couple of weeks ago in Berlin. l have never seen one like this before, but then we are quite far away from France. According to Wikipedia it is a Peugeot D4. The D4 and its very similar predecessor D3 were built between 1950 and 1965. This one is probably from 1959 and comes with a German classic car registration. Seems to have always been a food van, with the large fold-up window over the complete right side of the back. The interior in the back features two long stainless steel kitchen benchs with nice wooden bench tops. So still in use as a food van, nowadays with the Berlin-based company Wonderpots (“the frozen yogurt and other good stuff company”). Looks freshly renovated – almost a bit too tidy and clean. But still great to see such an old beauty in such a good condition!

A design originally by Chenard & Walcker in the later 1940s, then bought and made by Peugeot.
The original front-wheel-drive van! Before Citroen H, Renault Estafette, Fiat 238 and all the rest!
