Italian automobile designer Flaminio Bertoni was perhaps one of the most influential forces in European car design of the past century. Responsible for the original Citroën 2 CV, the DV and the AMI-6 Sedan, his approach left its impression on the European road-trip aesthetic long after his death in 1964. Now one of his most recognisable silhouettes, the HY Van — favorite of rustic food-truck start-ups around the world — has been given a modern makeover to celebrate the design’s 70th anniversary. The ‘Type-H’ comes courtesy of designer David Obendorfer and features a fiber-glass suit that can built onto the chassis of a traditional Citroën Jumper van.

The Type H Reinvention will be limited to a series of 70 units, available exclusively at selected retailers around Italy.
