Pony, Korea's first unique model, has become a touchstone for Korea today to stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the world in the ranks of automobile producers.

Pony, which began production on Dec. 1, 1975, was 140 kilometers at a maximum speed, 1,238 cc in emissions and 2.289 million won at the time, at its Ulsan plant, which was created under Hyundai Motor's basic plan to build a comprehensive auto plant since 1973.

The sleek fast-back style Pony, designed by Italian designer Georgeto Zizuaro, is regarded as the No. 1 domestic car that opened the doors of the Micah era in Korea while exporting its first overseas in 1976, starting with its first production of 50 units.
