Taking its name from a type of Camel known for its speed, the Mehari was launched at the Paris Car Show in October 1968 and would remain in the range for the next 20 years, only disappearing when 2CV production ceased in France in 1988, by which time a total of 144,953 had been made. Citroen Mehari began in late 1967 was built on the basis of the Dyane 6 with a pickup body plastic, a hood and side curtains and two wheel drive. This version 4WD produced primarily for the Army from 1980 to 1983 to some 1,200 copies only, and rare in civilian version is capable of amazing performance in any terrain thanks to its high ground clearance, its soft suspension and its limited weight.

Its first owner's widow kept this Méhari in storage for more than 20 years and when the car was sold to the current (third) owner in 2003 the odometer reading was only 2,900 kilometres. Only a further 1,800 kilometres have been added to the total since then and thus this car represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a 32-year-old example of Citroen’s iconic Méhari 4x4

In virtually 'as new' condition.
