In 1966 at the Turin Motorshow, Ferves (Ferrari Veicoli Speciali) revealed a new 'off-road' variant based on the Fiat 500 and 600. Initially with four seats or two plus a cargo area, in 1967 a four-wheel-drive variant was introduced, followed in 1969 by the Ranger Rallye. This featured improvements to most areas as well as new fog lights, roll bar, protection for the front and rear lights. Production stopped in 1970 after about 600 examples had been built.
Technically the Ranger used the engine and transmission of the 500, and the suspension of the 600. The wheelbase was 1330mm for the two wheel drive version and 1550mm for the 4x4.
