The history of Citroen in Argentina is quite...interesting. :)

Quote A-Series CitroŽns were made in Argentina for many years but they were all but identical to the French models. However, the 602 cm3 version of the 2CV was called 3CV.

Production started in 1960 and continued until the late 1970s. Due to the political and economic conditions that prevailed in Argentina, CitroŽn ceased manufacturing cars in 1980 although vehicles continued to be assembled from parts on hand and CKD kits until the time of the Falklands War when because of French support for the British, the factory was confiscated and given to INDUSTRIAS Eduardo SAL-LARI S.A. (I.E.S.).

Quote The IES story began in either 1982 or 1983 with the company building the IES 3CV which was all but identical to the equivalent CitroŽn 2CV 6.
Over the years, a number of detail changes were made - the electronic ignition and burglar alarm were introduced and the car was renamed IES Amťrica and then, with a change of chassis and suspension, bonnet lights, etc. the model was named IES 3CV Amťrica. The lights came from the Renault R6.
Another model was the Safari which was based on the Mťhari and retained the Mťhari's chassis and suspension in the front wheel drive versions but used an adapted tubular chassis for the 4 x 4 version.
A new 800cm3 water-cooled engine was under development by Berta, an Argentinian vehicle developer of great repute but IES went out of business and the owner, Eduardo Sal-Lari was apparently jailed for fraud in 1990 before the new engine could be put into production.
