The RANGER is a Fiat 500 600 derivative, built by the Italian automaker FERVES (FERrari VEicoli Speciali).
1967 Ranger, excellent condition, yellow, original top, new interior, original Metzler tires, Km 7831. Auto located in Italy, owned by American living there.
A very rare auto – only 600 produced from 1966-1971, and only 50 vehicles are believed to exist still. At the 1966 Turin Motor Show, Ferves 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, distinguishing it from all of the other 500 and 600 derivatives. With an open body, 4 vinyl-covered seats and anti-slip rubber floor mats, the Ranger is a beach car like the Jolly Ghia, yet with the possibility to go directly on the beach! The folding windscreen and suicide doors (which are removable or can be locked in the open position) transform it into a “barchetta”. Thanks to its capability to cruise slowly (given the 7/48 differential ratio, which is shorter than the original 500 one), you can “walk” in the woods and enjoy the outdoors in a way that no other off-road vehicle can offer.
