Acidulated Citroën Méhari 4×4 Orange Kirghiz from 1979
11 years after its launch, the Méhari created by Roland de la Poype is developed into a four-wheel drive version and presented the 23rdMay 1979. The standard two-wheel drive version could be a recreational car as well as a commercial vehicle with original crossing abilities, but the four-wheel drive was a genuine climber able to manage up to 40% hills and safe to drive down with its front and rear brake discs. It is easy to recognize with its front and rear tube bumpers with integrated lighthouse grids. As the standard version, the Méhari 4×4 gets plastic bodywork and the 602 cc twin-cylinder engine with double body carburetor, but the manual-4 gearbox is specific with 3 reduced gears to improve the climbing possibilities. The Méhari, as today the automotive Pop Years’ symbol, is more than ever capable to do everything in this 4×4 version! It is very rare as only 1213 four-wheel drive have been built, against 143 000 two-wheel drive.
This Orange Kirghiz Méhari 4×4 holds serial number VF7AYCE0000CE0325 and has been produced in 1979. It is in wonderful condition with leather seats, only 78 four-wheel drive hours on clock! It will receive a mechanical revision and will be delivered with its European registration card and an Agreed Value Certificate.
This very rare and acidulated Méhari 4X4 is an icon from the Pop Years, able to do whatever you will need from a nice ride on the seaside to a hike in the mountain.
