I am currently researching the history of the Pony (later Dragoon), that was to be produced by Autocars Ltd. in Israel. Some production did eventually take place, but I would like to ask for your help with the Pony prototypes.
To my best knowledge, there were three around: 1. C-Reg vehicle (CHP786C), which was probably never shipped to Israel. 2+3. Two vehicles shipped to Israel in 1966 (comm. # could be in the X751-759 range) - see attached picture taken at the Autocars plant that summer.
Can anyone share with me the prototype data for these vehicles, as it shows on Triumph's "X-list"?
Many thanks! This vehicle, although having been produced in Israel, was never approved for the local market (guess that's what happens when the government runs the car industry...) so that tracing its past is a challenge. However, I hope I can make some progress, soon.

I have recently scanned a whole collection of big saloon stuff for Ted Taylor and would be happy to scan the Dragoon factory workshop Manual for Gordon. I could pick it up at the NEC on Saturday - I will be mostly on the Standard Triumph Forum stand.
