Evaluation: No real history represented, but out of a private collection. The plastic body is in decent shape but shows plenty of flaws, including a large crack on the lower left and numerous blemishes. Good upholstery. Faded speedo, which is the only gauge you get in a Mehari. A charming beach cruiser, nothing to take too seriously.
Bottom Line: Named after the dromedary camel, the Mehari was sold in small quantities to the French military, but it is mostly relegated to recreation duty in seaside towns. Compared to other vintage beach cruisers like Mini Mokes, Fiat Jollies or VW Things, the Mehari is plenty practical but somehow a lot less charming and generally less valuable, at least in this country. That said, someone was taken with this refrigerator-white example to pay top dollar for it.
