The Type H 70th Anniversary Van will be produced by FC Automobili, using artisanal methods, as a limited series of 70 units in Italy.

With the design we did not intend to copy the forms of the original model, but rather we aimed to capture the soul of the iconic vehicle, reinterpreting it through a nostalgic fiberglass “suit” which at the same time is deeply rooted in contemporary style.

The Type H 70th Anniversary Van is a fusion of direct references to the predecessor with modern solutions, combined with the reliability and the technological content of the current Citroën Jumper series.

First presented in 1947 and launched in 1948, the Type H is now 70 years old. To celebrate this milestone, Fabrizio Caselani and designer David Obendorfer decided to recreate a Type H for the 21st century by offering a retro-style body kit for the Citroën Jumper.

Only 70 kits will be produced by FC Automobili, and the transformations will be carried out by hand in Italy.nd since the conversions are based on the current Citroën Jumper with either a 110- or 160-horsepower engine, the 70th anniversary Type H will have no difficulty making its way through modern traffic.
