Who remembers the Citroen Méhari from 1980s holidays in the Med?

2y ago


If you holidayed in France, Greece or Spain in the 1970s or 1980s you’re bound to have seen one of these Citroen Méharis.

Named after a quick dromedary camel, they were built between 1968 and 1988 using a 602cc engine from the 2CV mounted in a rust-resistant ABS plastic body, to which not a lot else was attached. Think of its as France’s answer to the Mini Moke.

They’re a rare sight even in Europe these days, and almost never seen in the UK for, er, obvious reasons, yet there are currently two for sale on eBay UK, including this one at KGF Classic Cars.

A former show-winner, this three-owner 1981 model is up for £13,995 and would make a brilliant fun summer car - though now that summer 2017 is almost as distant a memory as those from the 1980s, we’re not sure what you’d do with it for the next 10 months.
