Buying

What should I be paying?

It would be a pretty rare groove collector keeping an eye out for one of these in the UK. The ever excellent howmanyleft.co.uk currently lists four original Ponys still in use on UK roads at the end of 2022. The most since 2019, which is nice.

Hardly surprising that there are currently no cars for sale in the UK. In fact, even expanding that out to Europe, we only found one Pony/Pony 2 on the market, a ratty example in Greece wearing a POA tag. Doubtless hoping someone will think it’s a classic and make a daft offer. More modern Ponys are available from around €1,000. If you must.
