1970 Citroen Mehari: Humpty Dumpty Truck?

left

The word Mehari means a racing camel, but even though it only weighs about a thousand pounds, don’t expect too much from the 32 horsepower (or would that be camel power?) VW Mehari. This little Citroen doesn’t look like much, especially in the first picture of it here on eBay. But, there’s not much to it and it would go together easier than it looks and remember, the body is made of ABS plastic. Also, these Citroens were designed to be worked on by a farmer and are very simple. There is lots of documentation and a lot of manuals included. It looks like there is surface rust on the frame, so be sure to take a closer look at that. With 2 days to go, bidding is at about $1,700 and it has not met reserve. These aren’t worth much, perhaps $10,000 unless it is really nice. This doesn’t look like an opportunity for a flipper, but if the bidding stays below $3k, perhaps one could put this together and have a fun warm weather cruiser! Wouldn’t this be a fun little car to run around in, especially on a farm or ranch? It would be like having a street legal quad!

    “VW Mehari”?

    looks like a heck of a project, however for a farm, or better yet, animal sanctuary, Jurassic park, museum, petting zoo, etc etc would be a cool grounds vehicle. We bought a vacation home in a private resort and many owners there travel around in fancy golf carts and similar. One person there has some weird 3 wheeled electric cars as well that look vintage but were recently imported from Asia.
    Probably would offend someone but am I the only one thinking painting this one up in Afrika Korp colors and style? Erwin Rommel Staff car comes to mind. Maybe get a land Rover and dress up like Monte to balance things out.
