Among the company's products was the 'Pony Mécanique', the mechanical horse[disambiguation needed], developed by the Napier motor company and improved in design by Oliver Danson North a three-wheeled articulated tractor unit fitted with automatic coupling gear to enable rapid change of trailers. These vehicles were built under licence from UK company Scammell, from 1937 to 1970.
