    FOR SALE Dare to be different, an immaculate Citroen Dyane 6 Mehari Version 2. EQUIPMENT GRP body tub, tubular frame, heavy duty Surrey top, heater and defroster, directional signals, folding tailgate, safety chains, removable folding bench seat, dual electric wipers, bonnet straps, spare wheel. Dealer options; Mudflaps. MODEL HISTORY Conceived by French World War II fighter ace Count Roland de la Poype, the Mehari was based on a Citroen Dyane 6 platform and shared mechanicals with the 2CV6 and the Ami. The name Mehari is taken from a type of fast running camel, and Citroen referred it to the word "méhariste", a French colonial soldier in Algeria who rode a camel! Produced between 1968 and 1988, this utilitarian vehicle incorporated a Borg Warner Cycolac ABS plastic body tub and has gained iconic status in French automotive history. EXTERIOR The creative design of the corrugated Cycolac ABS body was part of Citroen’s vision for a simplistic, lightweight and fun vehicle, one which would not dent and with pre dyed panels that did not require painting. This example, finished in striking Green has been fully restored to a very high standard with all panels fully intact and showing only minor blemishes. Being a RHD conversion the panels have been replaced with GRP items perhaps from an El Cid model. A small cosmetic repair is evident on top of the driver’s door sill. A galvanised chassis replacement ensures complete structural integrity and the underside is very presentable. All trim sections are in great order, as is the fully removable surrey top in pristine condition with all catches and cords intact. An exceptional example and certain to delight to Citroen connoisseur. INTERIOR Utilitarian brilliance is demonstrated from Citroen, a maker renowned for their forward thinking innovation and dare to be different mentality. The vinyl seat coverings are perfect and this genuine four seater can easily be transformed into a capable utility vehicle with an impressive 880lb payload. The floor coverings are designed to be hosed out should a trip to the beach ensue! The original door chains remain fitted as Citroen intended and all controls operate as they should. Ergonomically compromised but a smile on your face is guaranteed, good sense of humour required! ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The air cooled two cylinder 602cc ‘pancake’ engine with its distinct rumbling soundtrack is instantly familiar, and with 33bhp it scampers along to offer a truly unique driving experience! The feather weight bonnet lifts to reveal a clean engine bay with correct brown heater tubes displayed. Total simplicity, superb owners club support and parts availability network ensure this classic is effortless to use and enjoy. The 4-speed synchro City-Matic ‘push me pull you’ transmission operates exactly as it should and being like no other car today. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Five correct grey steel wheels are shod in new matching 135 R15 tyres all round. The manufacture stampings are clearly visible and the offside front rim shows some markings. The front inboard drum brakes and rear drums whilst not up to modern capabilities perform well in such a lightweight vehicle. HISTORY FILE This 1971 Version 2 Mehari arrived in the UK from France in 2003 and has been subject to a complete rebuild whilst remaining true to the original design, with only subtle upgrades and professional conversion to right hand drive. Forming part of a multi-million pound classic car collection with the previous owner, this delightful example will meet the expectations of any serious collector and likewise, will delight fun seeking individuals striving to be a bit different! The large history folder contains receipts and invoices from Mehari specialists and also acts as a comprehensive manual with guides, drawings and parts brochures. A historically important slice of Citroen history and wonderful in every respect. MOT January 2018, HPI clear.

    This Citroën Mehari Azur is a limited edition proposed for the 1983 model year. The biggest difference between the Azur and the regular Méhari was that the plastic body was finished in white while the doors, the B-pillar, the grille and the headlight bezels were painted in dark blue. To further set it apart from more run-of-the-mill Méharis, Azur emblems were found on the tailgate and below the windshield, and dark blue stripes ran up both sides of the hood. The finishing touch was a set of white 15-inch steel wheels with ten oval holes. On the inside, the seats featured a specific white and dark blue upholstery. The Azur could be ordered as either a two- or a four-seater. The Méhari Azur was only sold in France, Italy and Portugal. The 700 examples of the Méhari Azur sold out so quickly that Citroën decided to add the car to its catalog as a regular production model in 1986. The model was produced until 1987, when production of the Méhari stopped. This Azur four-seater was imported from Portugal in 2001 and remained by the first Dutch owner for 15 years.
