CitroŽn FAF 1973-1979

The CitroŽn FAF is a small open-top automobile produced by the French manufacturer CitroŽn from 1973 until 1979, built and sold in various developing and Third World countries.

Like the similar CitroŽn Mťhari, the FAF derived from the 2CV. FAF stood for the French Facile ŗ Fabriquer and Facile ŗ Financer (Easy to Manufacture, Easy to Finance). The body was made of easy to produce, folded elements and the car looked effectively like a metallic version of the Mťhari.

The primary target market for the FAF was Africa. As its name suggests, it was meant to allow "easy" production, mostly in developing countries. The idea followed the widespread production of similar 2CV-based vehicles in a large number of countries, including Iran (Baby-Brousse, Jyane-Mehari), Vietnam (Dalat), Greece (Namco Pony), Chile (YagŠn), Spain, Portugal and others (it is often erroneously reported that some of these vehicles were based on the FAF). However, the concept of a "second-class" car that was connected with the FAF seems to have affected its manufacture and sales that remained low, in contrast to the success enjoyed by some of its predecessors. Various kit car style bodies were also developed, inspired by the FAF and Mťhari, such as Belgium's VanClee.

Lack of charisma can be fatal.
