1967 Ferves Ranger Wants to Be Yours to Pet

As tempting as it might be to call this a pedal car, please don’t, as you will certainly offend the community build around these things, considered to be a better alternative to the standard VW Beach Buggy.

The Ferves Ranger is basically a small runabout made with different Fiat 500 and 600 parts. Ferves, which stands for Ferrari Veicoli Speciali, is a branch of Ferrari that was building such oddities back in the day.

There were only 600 units made between 1966 and 1971, and most people say only around 50 have survived. The Ranger is categorized as a leisure and off-roading vehicle, much like the classic Buggy, and it’s among the simplest forms of vehicles you can find.

It has a Fiat 500 steering wheel and 499 cc engine, while the suspension and brakes are borrowed from the bigger Fiat 600 model. Other features include a detachable roof, removable suicide doors, four vinyl-wrapped seats, a folding windscreen and a top speed of 45 mph (72 km/h).

The Ranger here on sale appears to be in excellent condition and the owner brags that it’s 100 percent original. It did only 7,831 km (4,865 mile) since 1967 and it’s currently located in it’s homeland Italy.

Oh, we forgot to mention that the owner wants $33,000 for this rarity.
