1970 Citroen Mehari US version
Here is a rare US version Citroen Mehari (one of 200 imported to the US). 602 cc flat-two.
Restored body, rebuilt engine, new clutch, tires, brakes, new top, new exhaust etc etc
The body is entirely ABS plastic, built over a tube frame perched on the Dyane 6 platform. The use of plastic in the body meant that it was extremely light weight. The tube frame, and lack of safety regulations in the 1960s meant that the entire top could come off. The Méhari could be open-air all the way down to the beltline. Almost to the floor if the front doors were removed. The body panels had to be moulded in color, which meant that the cars came in a wide range of very bright colours. The engine was an air-cooled 602 cc flat two-cylinder, taken from the 2CV6. It made a whopping 33 hp in 1970. Attached to the engine was a four-speed manual gearbox.
The Méhari has a folding windshield, along with a cloth top. The top can go all-up, but you can also remove just the side "windows", just the roof, or open it pretty much however you want.
This Méhari is a 1970 model. It's also one of just a handful of US model cars sold between 1969 and 1970. This exemple has been fully restored just a few years ago. The engine and clutch have been restored a week ago. It comes with a new soft top, new tires, and a new exhaust. It even has it's namesake camel in sticker form on the fender and tailgate. An additional bench can be added at the back in order to convert it to a 4 passenger vehicle.
