Ferves Ranger 4x4 1969
Moteur n° 110F00011501212

« Présenté au Salon de Turin 1966, le Ferves Ranger était un séduisant et très compact véhicule tout-terrain. Le moteur monté à l'arrière était un FIAT 500 de 18 ch, le système de suspension indépendante provenait de la FIAT 600 D et la transmission était à quatre roues motrices. La carrosserie découverte à quatre places offrait un pare-brise rabattable et des portes blocables en position ouverte. Une version pick-up dite Cargo fut aussi cataloguée. Les derniers exemplaires recevaient une boîte à 5 rapports (avec un rapport supplémentaires très court), une option 4x2 et un blocage de différentiel. » - The Beaulieu Encyclopedia of the Automobile.

Produit par le carrossier Ferves (Ferrari-Veicoli-Speciali), le Ranger recevait une carrosserie ouverte en acier et quatre sièges garnis de vinyle. Les premiers exemplaires étaient équipés de porte « suicide » (ouvrant vers l'arrière) démontables. La vitesse maximale était d'environ 70-80 km/h.

Sur 600 véhicules produits, il en resterait environ 50 et cet exemplaire proposé avec une capote en toile demande quelques travaux pour parfaire sa restauration. Peint en orange avec intérieur noir, ce Ranger actuellement en configuration 4x2 est offert avec toutes les pièces nécessaires à sa conversion en 4x4. Il est accompagné de son libretto italien.

1969 Ferves Ranger 4x4
Engine no. 110F00011501212

'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.

Produced by body manufacturer Ferves (Ferrari, Veicoli, Speciali) the Ranger had an open steel body and four vinyl covered seats. Early versions had removable 'suicide' doors, later ones conventional hinged doors. Maximum speed was in the region of 70-80km/h.

One of 600 made, of which only 50 are believed to survive, this example comes with its fabric top and needs relatively little work to complete its restoration. Finished in orange with black interior, the car is currently in two-wheel drive configuration, but all the parts required for 4x4 operation come with it. Offered with Italian libretto.
