1909 Ford Model T

One of the most popular cars of the early twentieth century, design began in 1907 and was in production for the 1909 model year. Over 15 million of these cars were made until the last one rolled off the assembly line in 1926. The key to the success of the Model T was it's affordability. This lead an interest in purchasing it, from the masses of middle income families. At an introductory price of $850, the model T was priced at a low that was unheard of at the time. Many ford dealerships refused to hand out the advance brochures, out of fear of not being able to clear out the stock they had.
