France has not made the Citroen H Van since 1981 - but there are still plenty around. They started making them in 1948 - the year I was born - just after WWII. It was well ahead of its time with front wheel drive with the engine and transmission way up front - where they are easy to work on. This allows for a flat floor with lots of cargo space. The corrugated panels were easy to machine after the war.
The French call them "Pig Noses."
Imagine one being done up in FSU garnet and gold colors with spears on the side. One would be great for making a camper.
