I reckon its a fair bet that one wont have an engine in, quite a few of the catering vans dont bother with the gubbins of an engine :-D

This J7 used as a catering van at Alnmouth Old Schoolhouse Gallery is an example

That's a fair bet Neil... A good way of preventing oil leaks spilling onto the floor of the shopping centre :lol:

DVLA says it's on SORN and MOT expired in April 2016... So even if it is 'complete' it's unlikely to be operational...

Watched Hubnut's video review of the new Citroen Ami, and on his drive around Coventry. He spotted a Citroen H Van on his drive and went back to for a photo opportunity with the Ami, next to the Citroen H Van.

Hubnut's Video is on the Citroen Ami Thread

The BBC have a program called "The Travelling Auctioneers", with Christina Trevanion and Will Kirk (he of "The Repair Shop" fame) driving around in an H Van, which has been turned into a travelling workshop so Will can repair any wooden furniture.

I spotted a mid blue H Van yesterday lunchtime driving through Benson on the A4074. I was travelling in the opposite direction, so no photograph.

Pretty ubiquitous in the street catering department these days, but always nice to come across one unexpectedly.

I am UTTERLY gobsmacked!! I saw 2 H-Vans today. The first was around 06:30 this morning, and was being driven (yes, DRIVEN under its own power) into Reading. I was not able to get a photo (mainly because I was in shock). Later on I was working in Redhill, and I saw this H-Van.
