First Title: 1963/10
Gearbox Type: Manual
Warranty: Mutual Agreement
The Citroën Méhari was a model produced by the French company between 1968 and 1987. It originated from SEAB, a company specializing in plastic molding.
Based on the mechanics of the 2cv, the Méhari's plastic body rests on a tubular chassis and results in a very simple car.
In 1978, a new version appeared, which underwent profound changes in terms of mechanics and bodywork. A year later, a 4x4 version is presented, which surprises with its off-road qualities, becoming the medical vehicle that guaranteed assistance at the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1980.
It was also made in Uruguay until 1979, assembled by Nordex only with front-wheel drive, using mechanical components from Citroën Argentina and a fiberglass reinforced plastic body, easier to be produced in Uruguay with simple molds instead of being injection molded as was the case with the French model.
Between 1968 and 1987 around 145,000 Méhari were produced.
