  1. The funny thing is, the "Pony Coupe Prototype" was going to be called the "Asso Di Fiori" - Ace of Clubs. Hyundai asked it to be name the Pony Coupe, at the last minute, as it was built on on the floor pan of a Hyundai Pony. Five years later, they built the Piazza prototype, and called it the "Asso Di Fiori".
  2. The Scirocco was the same designer as the Pony Coupe Prototype. VW Sciroco: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/volkswagen-scirocco You can tell he really liked his Hatchbacks. So was the early Passat. VW Passat: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/volkswagen-passat Lambourghini Gallardo: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/lamborghini-gallardo (My Fav design he did)

    The Pickup probably didn't come to Canada for two reasons most likely.. A) They were caught by surprise by the popularity. It did take some doing to get them approved for this market; with special provisions for third world producers at that time by the Government, they probably didn't bother. B ) American's love their big trucks. The bigger the better. Gas was cheap in comparison in the 80's/90's. The Green Chevy S-10 behind it is considered a compact truck. It would probably be cheaper to import a Pony Pickup from England or South America, and convert it to LHD.

    Weird trim levels

    Hyundai Pony GT Trim Level. Basically a 1600GLS Pony, with a Factory Momo Steering Wheel, and the aero bits you see on the car. Only saw one black one years ago in the 90's. Hyundai Pony GT Trim Package: GT package (which included a leather-wrapped Momo 3-spoke steering wheel), tachometer, different trim and badging, fog lamps, and extra lights in the rear. All GTs came with the more powerful 1.6 L engine.
  5. They Hyundai Pony was actually designed by a very famous designer: Italdesign Giugiaro http://www.italdesign.it/home He Designed Cars like the following, including a lot of Autoshite cars you find here: Hyundai Pony: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/hyundai-ponyFamous Golf GTI: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/volkswagen-golfBMW M1: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/bmw-m1Maserati 4200 Coupe: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/maserati-4200-coupeDolorean: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/delorean-dmc12 (This was actually styled after the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe Prototype) 1974 Pony Coupe Prototype: http://www.italdesign.it/progetto/hyundai-pony-coupe Giugiaro Design: This one is still on the road too.

    No Pony Pickups in North America. In South America, there were tons. England got the MK1 and MK2 Pony's, including most of the versions. Pickup, 2 Door, 4Door, and Wagon. Australia also got all versions. Canada only got the MK2 4Door.
  7. Not sure if it's original, but most likely... Hyundai Cortina. People say, the Front Grill and Bumper are a bit different, and they liked it.
  8. The Stellar was basically an updated Cortina. They all use 4x108 bolt patterns for a reason (Pony included).

    The Parts Car. Driver's floor is pretty bad. But it starts and drives well. It needs a new brake booster though. Simple fix. I've debated taking the parts car, doing a welding marathon and converting into a pickup as follows. It would have the similar lines to a real Pony Pickup, minus the tailgate and lights. It would retain the Pony sedan lights.

    It is the same bumper. The bumper shocks, and the plastic bits were creative Korean engineering to meet the higher Canadian standards. The same for the headlights. They had to use the sealed beam lights.

    Yes. I have a parts car as well, that is drivable, but stored away. Didn't have the heart to tear it apart and store the parts. It lives for now. It has a 1.6L Engine, and 5spd Manual transmission, which is worth rebuilding and putting in here.

    This car sat for many years with a blown clutch and 110,000KM on it. A simple fix, and it was back on the road. Original Paint, 4spd Manual, with the weak 1.4L engine. This is the North American Spec car with the ugly 5KM/H bumpers that Hyundai had to add. With the gearing of the 4spd (really needs the optional 5spd), it can cruise nicely at 110 KM/H all day long. It's made several long trips recently. My favourite comparing the old and the new.
