Based on the Fiat 600, the Jungla was a utilitarian jeep-like vehicle designed for work, not pleasure. It was first shown at the Turin Motorshow in 1965, entered production in the following year and continued to be built until 1974. In that time several thousand were built.
Characterised by it's spartan fittings, it used the 600 mechanicals with little change, a rear-mounted, water-cooled 767cc engine driving the rear wheels. Drum brakes all round were hidden by wheels from the Fiat 1100. Later, when the 600 ceased production in Italy it used the similar engine from the Seat 600E from Spain. The controls were also from the 600, whilst the instrumentation was from the 500. A fuel guage was not fitted, merely a warning light for the reserve.
A soft-top was available, as were cloth doors (which had plastic windows). The spartanism continued to the single windscreen-wiper (drivers-side only). Interestingly, although it was produced by Savio, the project actually came from within Fiat's Engineering department.
