Vintage 1970 Citroen H-Van Cooks and Serves Empanadas on Streets of San Francisco

Citroen restoration specialist transforms vintage van into modern mobile food business serving artisanal empanadas and other South American specialties


San Francisco, CA – The Vintage 1970 Citroen H Van converted into a modern mobile food business for EL Sur of San Francisco has completed its cross-country journey from New Jersey to California.  The vintage van was imported from Normandy France by EuroCar Imports of New Jersey and shipped to their garage where it recently underwent a dramatic transformation.

El Sur’s fully restored vintage 1970 Citroen H-Van is the first of its kind in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although Citroen no longer manufactures the H Van, many vintage car enthusiasts scour the globe looking to get their hands on one.

El Sur, a new San Francisco based mobile food business serving artisanal empanadas and other South American specialties, will be cooking and serving Argentine style empanadas in their fully restored Citroen H van, straight from the oven in the van’s stainless steel kitchen.

EuroCar Imports, Citroen restoration specialists, imported the H Van from France and completed the extreme makeover from their New Jersey garage.  After completion, the van traveled nearly 3,000 miles from New Jersey to San Francisco, arriving at El Sur the first week in April.

This is not the first time EuroCar Imports has converted a Citroen H Van into a modern promotional vehicle for the food industry.  Just last week, the garage wrapped up its second H van makeover project of the year.  That one is heading to Los Angeles where it will make pick-ups and deliveries from local farmers’ markets to a high end restaurant.

EuroCar Imports, founded and operated by Noel Slade and based out of a state-of-the art facility in Toms River, is known for its restorations, extreme makeovers and rebuilding of classic Citroen vehicles. It offers a one-stop shop for fans of the French car manufacturer, with a huge catalog of parts.  From parts to service, restorations to rebuilds, EuroCar Imports can customize any classic Citroen vehicle for today’s most innovative customer.   The garage also serves overseas clients with the customization of right hand drive Citroens.
