Since GTA3 the makers seem to have swapped names between the Rumpo and Pony, now the Pony is the smaller van.

There´s also a Pony in black, it appears in the telephone mission which is at the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory, Little Havanna. But you can´t drive it out of the backyard, because the gate isn´t opened enough.

Generic van (with even more specific grille from 3rd gen Ford Transit, which was very freely inspired by his predecessor in GTA 3).
The same in SA and other "3D" GTA.

No. This stays listed as a Tradesman.

According to IMCDB, the Tradesman name was used only between 1971 and 1978, the 1979-80 models are listed as Dodge Dodge Van:
imcdb.org/vehicles.php?make=Dodge&model=Dodge+Van&modelMatch=1&modelInclModel=on
It sounds weird, but it seems that this is the official name, since the Tradesman name isn't mentioned anywhere in this 1979 Dodge brochure:
www.oldcarbrochures.com/static/NA/ChryslerTrucksVans/1979%20Trucks%20and%20Vans/1979%20Dodge%20Trucks%20Brochure/dirindex.html
So, the (currently 13) '79 Tradesmen on the site should be renamed to "1979 Dodge Dodge Van".

And now we have another model name, also, i don't think the 'Dodge Van' model name sounds weird, it's just like in case of Chevrolet Chevy Van
