In the early 1950s, the Ministry of Defense launched a tender for the supply of a light off-road vehicle, to replace the indefatigable Jeeps inherited from the allies. Fiat won the tender, with the AR 51; called Campagnola, in the civilian version. This specimen is a 1101 version, i.e. a model for civilian use; appears with diesel engine from documents, but installed a petrol engine (as is correct according to chassis type "1101"). The original motor 105.007\*001381\* has been replaced with a compliant one 105.007\*001411\*. It was produced on April 3, 1952, and sold in Bari. The original commercial vehicle registration document is present, in pages. Black plates of the province of Alessandria. A frame-off restoration was carried out in 2016, only the sheet covering the loading bed is missing; the original gray has been replaced by a typical army green. After the restoration, the car has not driven. 42953km are shown on the odometer. Comes with a Fiat Classiche certificate of origin and a chronological excerpt.
