Ferves was an Italian automobile manufacturer from 1965 until 1970. First seen at the 1966 Turin Motor Show, Ferves (Ferrari Vehicoli Speciali) introduced the Ranger as a small 'off-road' derivative of the Fiat 500, ideal for farm or vineyard use. It was powered by a rear-mounted 18bhp 499cc two-cylinder in-line engine. Approximately 50 examples are thought to survive out of the 600 made and this one is believed to be the only example in the UK.

Purchased from Italy in October 2015 by the current vendor after having a ride in one a number of years ago the Ranger was in the limelight when it was invited to the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it was displayed on the Cartier lawn. Said to be in 'excellent' order with regards to the engine, gearbox, paintwork, interior trim and bodywork 'HSA 223E' displays a credible 38,816 kms and is offered with a collection of invoices, V5C and full weather equipment. The designer Carlo Ferrari's connection to the Maranello 'Ferrari' name, is unclear, however, but it is sure to turn more heads than anything from Maranello.
