Check out this video of a just unveiled contemporary reinvention of the H-Van on its 70th anniversary.
It was developed in collaboration by Fabrizio Caselani and David Obendorfer as a tribute to the original H Van’s designer Flaminio Bertoni.
Designed to be a retro-fit for Citroën’s modern Jumper Van, we are pretty sure it can be installed on a 2016 Ram ProMaster Cargo Van as the van was a co-operative build between Citroën, Peugeot (Boxer Van) and Fiat Chrysler (Fiat Ducato).
Only 70 kits will be produced and the transformations will be carried out by hand in Italy. Providing a kit is available for purchase we see no reason why you couldn’t send a Ram Promaster (or a few of them) to Europe and get the transformation done and then re-import back to USA. (George Dyke that did with his H Van for PicoBrew last summer, only while he was there instead of a body conversion he got front disk brakes installed at HY Conversions.)
Cost of the Type H body kit conversion has been announced yet as far as we can tell. But given how cool it looks, we bet you’d need to move fast to get one: http://www.typeh.eu/contatti.php
And if you wanted to go a step further with it when back in the North America and use it as a food truck, build a pull out serving counter in it, something like Peugeot recently showed with their concept “La Marcelle” mini-van food truck:
