Mystery Car XV

This one's not my bag. I just don't get 'into' the utility vehicles. Sorry, can't help you here.

However, for others: Note the three-lug wheels and overall small size. French? Italian? Czech?

My initial guesses are Skoda, Renault, Fiat, Seat, Isotta, Steyr-Puch (specialty military manufacturer in the day), Diahatsu, Cushman (?).

I'm not either, but this one reminded me of the VW Thing which my brother always wanted to get. I'd never heard of this model although the foreign company is well known.

The country of origin is listed in your guesses but the company is not. Here's a hint: This model was only produced in the US for one year and had a plastic body.

Citroën Méhari.
