Within a few years after that, the compacts had given rise to a new class called the pony car, named after the Ford Mustang, which was built on the Falcon chassis.
During the 1960s, compacts were the smallest class, but in the early 1970s, the domestic automakers introduced even smaller models, the subcompact, that included the AMC Gremlin, Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto.
