The Valiant was Mopar's compact of the 60's.  By the 70's Chrysler had 
bought a large part of Mitsubishi and began selling Dodge Colts (rebadged 
Mitsubishi's) as their compact.  Anyone remember the Plymouth "Cricket" of 
the 70's?  It was a British car badged as a Plymouth (don't remember which 
Bristish manufacturer actually built it).  I remember that the Cricket 
didn't last too long on the market as it was ah, er, less than reliable as 
actual transportation.  :-)

I saw a like new Vega wagon at a car show a couple of weeks ago.  Apparently 
bought and then never driven.
