The Baby-Brousse is a Citroën 2CV based buggy. The car is like a metal-bodied Citroën Méhari and is similar in concept to the French Citroën FAF. The vehicle was a success with more than 31,000 being built from 1963 to 1987. The entire body was made of folded sheet steel with the other parts being bolted together, with no welding.
The Baby-Brousse was originally conceived in 1963 by two Frenchmen, Mr. Letoquin and Mr. Lechanteurin that owned les Ateliers et Forges de l’Ebrié, a company in Abidjan, the capital of the Ivory Coast.
