THE FIRST SAMPLE OF PASSENGER TRANSPORT AFTER FIRST WORLD WAR
After the First World War, the displacement of persons (and goods) became faster. The first vehicles for collective transport with an engine became diffused, normally as a bus with a body building of a serial car frame. One model was the Fiat 507/F Orlandi, immediate progenitor of modern minibus – so for dimensions (2,3 meters x 5,4), so for passenger places (13 persons + driver and ticket collector). The Fiat 507 was produced for two years only: 1926 and 1927. The Bus version remained in production until 1928. It was developed by the Body Builder Carrozzeria Emiliana Renzo Orlandi, a company specialized in Body Building which was integrated in Iveco in 1988.
