Classic Citroen Food Vans

27 04 2015

A rare view in Berlin – here comes the Citroën H Van! I spotted the bright green one some two weeks ago, the gray one a few days later. This model never really made it in Germany. But is must have been quite successful in France where it was built for a full 34 years, between 1947 and 1981. The French nickname seems to be Nez de Cochon, pig nose. The side panels are made from characteristic sheets of corrugated metal. It seems now to become a trend to use these unusual trucks as food vans. The green one looks freshly restored and rebuilt into a food van with a fold up selling bar over the full left side of the van. The gray one is already on a mission as the “Kiezwagen Blank”, a van that sells vegetarian and vegane street food, making the point of getting completely away with packing material. So a cool classic truck now used to explore new ways to cook better food while generating less rubbish. Nice motto on the left side: “A tasteful world without pastic”. Cool!

Very unusual looking, but in a good way.
