Oxford Diecast 76CIT002 Citroen H Type Catering Van - "Jamie Oliver at Gatwick" - 1:76 Scale (OO)
The personable British chef and entrepreneur Jamie Oliver features on this Citroën H catering van promoting his undoubtedly delicious selection of ‘On the hoof’ snacks from his pitch at Gatwick Airport! The jazzy red and white eye-catching livery is promoting refreshments including coffee, speciality teas and snacks on a huge roof billboard, whilst the sides are drawing in the punters for his restaurant food, bakery and bar. We love the red and white wheels too! It's left hand drive configuration has a French number plate 691 HW 89.
The Citroën H was produced by Citroën between 1947 and 1981, during which time it did not change very much. There were only three body styles available on this panel van and most of the component parts were interchangeable with later Citroën vehicles such as the iconic 2CV.
