Hi, I’m Colin Jenkins, the Mehari Registrar since 2009, and an active club member since 1994. I have owned and enjoyed my Mehari “Humph” since 2001.
The Citroën Méhari was produced by Citroen as a utility vehicle aimed initially for use by the French Army, and later as a practical and fun car. In total 144,953 Méharis were built between 1968 and 1988. Good and accurate details of the car and its history can be found on Wikipedia. The aim of the 2CVGB Club Mehari Register is to record and offer help and advice to club-member owners of Meharis in the UK and elsewhere. There are about 30 active Meharists registered and on the road in the UK, but over 100 Meharis have passed through the club over the years.
There are considerably more on the roads and hidden in barns in France. Being based on the 2cv/Dyane running gear and engine the car is easy to look after, and with all space-frame and body components still being produced by several suppliers in France it is still easy to restore a Mehari to “as-new” condition..
The car itself is great fun to drive, and certainly offers the pleasures of open–top touring in the summer, and with the weather gear on can be quite snug in the winter.
