    Oh look here's one! Ready for soft serves! Love the gnome. You'd need to sell ALOT of icecreams to pay that baby off.

    Hi Squidy
    Welcome ! You have set yourself a challenge with wanting a H van. They were never sold here and really are only available from France readily and there is some demand now since they have become trendy for coffee .
    Good luck Jaahn

    Hmmm
    Be cheaper to take an extended holiday in France and find one get it repaired and bring it back IMHO.
    More fun than paying those prices, for sure
    Bloody hell: $80K, $48K, $50K ????? a lot for an old 'tradie' van !! Slow as a wet week too !
    Perhaps old Kombi prices are not so silly after all !!

    you could buy a decent SM for those prices, or 2 D's, 100 GS's 200 Xantias...


    careful though, I remember being snapped at for making comments on 'values' of vehicles once before and I'm sure the vendor is still sharpening their sabre waiting for me.

    If someone wants one then that's the price, here anyway.

    And. Realistically by the time you fit one out and sort out the mechanicals and bling the cost is going to be up there so there you go.

    Strike a light.! And Sacrebleu.!

    $80,000 and it isn't even registered. I'm with Jaahn. I'm going on a holiday to France and maybe not even bothering to bring one back..

    I would understand someone paying 50,000 for a great DS with "DSness", because nothing else on the road to this day can better it.
    But paying that for an H van! I don't know how many of you have actually driven or let alone sat in one, but they are the shittiest, noisiest, slowest pieces of crap on the road. I spent my youth sitting on the back of them, or occasionally driving them, because in the sixties every employer had one. Admittedly they were reliable and cheap to run for small businesses, and obviously now they are "cute"
    and trendy. But the Renault Estafettes were way better.

    M. H. Citroen,

    One must be careful what one states on A/F ... these rusted on, one eyed owners have loooooooooooooong memories.
    Even if you DO speak the truth.

    Ah! M.Fritzelhund!

    I just knew you were lurking, waiting for a post from this controversial Harrisson. Admit it Fritz, I provide you with a lot of entertainment. Aussiefrogs has been so quiet and boring in my absence!
    Anyway, to put the record straight, I am not criticising any of the above cars for sale at all, I am just mentioning than no H van is worth this kind of money in general! only to people who have never had one.....

    About as fast and as noisy as the early 2CV and look at how desirable they have become!

    Hi Guys,

    If you do find a H Van for sale it will be extremely expensive, maybe $60,000 +, because of their popularity as food vans (as previously stated).

    I think you will be opening a can of worms if you want to bring one in yourself, for the following reasons:

    There are very expensive now overseas.

    Find a good one at any price will be difficult.

    I doubt there will be anymore coming into Australia, due to Border Protection's attitude towards vehicles containing Asbestos!

    A Friend was going to bring his H Van camper back to Australia this year, but has decided against it because of the difficulty in proving that the van is asbestos free.

    Best regards,

    Greg
