The Fiat 500 Ferves Ranger: small-size SUV

Approximately 600 Fiat 500 Ferves Ranger were manufactured between 1967 and 1971, and today, about fifty are still around.

Fifty wonderful survivors – approximately ten of which are in the United States – made by Turin-based coachbuilder Ferves (acronym of Ferrari Veicoli Speciali), where mechanical components borrowed from various models – Fiat 500F, 600D, 850, Autobianchi Primula – were assembled.

This charming 4-seater flaunted four-wheel drive and “Cargo” work versions; some have described it as a small-size SUV or mini jeep… and yet today it is one of some collectors’ biggest dreams.
