The 1978 Ford Pinto is shown in this company handout photo. This subcompact became a hot seller for Ford after its introduction in 1970. The Pinto's 10-year run was marred by litigation over the car's fuel tank design. Twenty-seven people died during the 1970s in fuel tank fires in the Pinto, which Ford eventually recalled.
