1968 Ferves Ranger
Chassis no. FUSO571
'Presented at the 1966 Turin Show, the Ferves Ranger was an attractive looking and extremely compact all-terrain vehicle. The rear-mounted engine was an 18bhp FIAT 500 unit, the all independent suspension came from the FIAT 600D and all four wheels were driven. The open bodywork featured a folding windscreen and doors that could be fixed in the open position, and could seat four passengers. A Cargo pick-up version was also marketed. Later examples had 5-speed gearboxes (with an extra-low ratio), the option of 4x2 drive and a locking differential.' – The Beaulieu Encyclopedia of the Automobile.
This example was in Adrien Maeght's collection for 40 years and was on display in his Museum from 1984 onwards. The vehicle was purchased from Adrien Maeght in July 2009 and since then has been fully restored both mechanically and cosmetically by a FIAT specialist. A French title comes with it.

Présentée au Salon de Turin 1966, la Ferves Ranger était un véhicule tout-terrain extrêmement compact et bien dessiné. Le moteur arrière était un groupe Fiat 500 de 18 ch, les suspensions indépendantes provenaient de la Fiat 600 D et les quatre roues étaient motrices. La carrosserie découverte, équipée d'un pare-brise rabattable et de portes blocables en position ouverte, pouvait accueillir quatre occupants. Une version pick-up dite Cargo fut aussi commercialisée. Les derniers exemplaires avaient une boîte à 5 rapports (dont une première très courte), une transmission 4x2 en option et un blocage de différentiel. » The Beaulieu Encyclopedia of the Automobile.

Cet exemplaire qui fit partie de la collection d'Adrien Maeght pendant 40 ans fut exposé dans son musée à partir de 1984. Acheté à ce dernier en juillet 2009 et totalement restauré en mécanique comme en carrosserie par un spécialiste Fiat, ce véhicule est accompagné de sa carte grise française.
