At the 1966 Turin Motor Show, Ferves (FERrari VEicoli Speciali) introduced the Ranger, a small "off road" derivative of the Fiat 500 and Fiat 600.

The project, signed by Engineer Ferrari himself, as shown in the sales catalog, delineates a vehicle for leisure and for off-roading, which, for its construction as well as its possible uses, distinguishes it from all of the other Fiat 500 and 600 derivatives.

With an open body, 4 vinyl-covered seats and anti-slip rubber floor mats, the Ranger adds to the qualities of a beach car like the Jolly Ghia the possibility to go directly on the beach, while the folding windscreen and suicide doors (which are removable or can be locked in the open position), transform it into a "barchetta"; the capability to cruise slowly (thanks to the 7/48 differential ratio, which is shorter than the original 500 one), you can "walk" in the woods, etc. and enjoy the outdoors in a way that no other off-road vehicle can offer.

Its striking look, its unique performance, its versatility off-road make the Ranger a totally new and absolutely original vehicle with respect to the mechanical Fiat base from which it is derived.

A 1969 Ferves Ranger is available for purchase from Italy until March 1st on eBay.
