It was born immediately after the war with the first prototypes made in 1947 to satisfy both civil and military tasks. Inspired even if not directly by the American Jeep it was characterized by 4x4 all-wheel drive and a sturdy and reliable structure capable of tackling the most difficult and demanding routes. The aluminum body made it lighter but at the same time more resistant to corrosion and a long service life. In 1971 when the Series III was introduced more than a million units had already been produced and built for both civil and military use both in the 88-inch "standard wheelbase" version or in the 109 "long wheel base" version inches the latter reproduced in the kit.
