1970 Citroën Méhari

This 1970 Méhari (rare US spec model) has been restored slowly with care and pride.   In 1996 it was bought in pieces from a Rhode Island guy.  The 2 years slow restoration was based on reverse engineering,  a lot of fun, and pleasure of trying. 

All ABS body parts (faded red) were dismantled + minor repairs done w/ fiberglass + painted professionally (by me!) with a mini- roller — green / latex paint for exterior. The frame was in very good shape, but, anyway, received new coatings.  The rivets (aluminum) were replaced with stainless steel screws/locking nuts.  The old/destroyed front seats were replaced with a very good and comfy velvety fabric.  

The tires (Cooper) are like brand new.  

Everything works OK (due to Dave Burnham & Phil Caron).  The engine (new – from Holland through Kenji @ FPS) is like brand new (after only 14k miles), but probably needs some TLC.  The electrical system is in good shape; 123 electronic ignition, push button to start, enclosure for radio / CD player, easy access / fuel tank (new level sensor from FPS), new round lights at rear). 

Brand new (never installed) sides & back covers from Club Cassis + 2 door frames + 2 middle posts.

Comes with 2 boxes with new/used  parts + Haynes 2CV book & Cassis catalogues.  

The car is registered & insured. Runs 2-3 times/week between May – October and is kept inside all year. Located in Newington, CT.

Asking $17,000. US o.b.o.
