This machine is the prototype for the ones made in the early 60s in St. Boniface, Manitoba by General Machine & Welding Ltd. There were 2 models and the Super was the larger, more suited for commercial use. The lighter model, the Pony, appealed to both the utility and sports markets. Described as economical and dependable winter transportation, it was constructed of unitized tubular and sheet steel. The body and skis were spring suspended. Both models seated 2 adults and had high towing capacity. This machine weighs 465 lbs and has a Wisconsin air-cooled, 4 cyl. 9.2hp engine. The story is told that Dave Johnson (Polaris) threatened to sue Ove, the builder, for infringing on 4 Polaris patents. That is when he stopped building this model type and designed a smaller version, but never produced them.
