The 1977 Jerrari at the National Automobile Museum

A Jerrari is a vehicle that is part Jeep and part Ferrari. Two of these vehicles were made for William Fisk Harrah (Bill Harrah, founder of Harrah's Hotel and Casinos),[1] both have Ferrari engines. The 1969 has the front end of a Ferrari 365 and the rear of a 1969 Jeep Wagoneer,[2][3] the second is a 1977 Jeep Wagoneer with a Ferrari V12 engine.[4] Both have been featured in multiple books and magazines including Road & Track and Forza.[5]

The 1969 was posted on eBay in May 2008, with a Chevy 350 V8 in place of the Ferrari V12, with bidding exceeding $21,000.[6][7]

The 1977 is on display at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada.[8]
