Heller Citroen Mehari

After building a standard, and a surf version, I thought military version (hoping I've put this in the right forum). Built box stock, camo painting all flat surfaces included the 'glass' side and rear window!

I like it, where and when would this vehicle have been used? I'm not familiar with this particular vehicle, civilian or military.

Well Rob, It normally comes in as a summer cruiser, South of France, Citroen 2CV base, Twin Cylinder air cooled engine, used by French Farmers, very lightweight alloy construction, exceptional soft but strong suspension,  super economical to run. My fantasy take is that it could have been used by the French Resistance  in the early 1940's, if it had been around that long ago.

My previous view as a beach/Surf Cruiser..

Or as a basic version daily driver..

OK lurch. they were made in Argentina from 1971 to 1980 and

assembled in Belguim based on the old Citroen 2CV running gear, 2 cylinder engine and gearbox.
