1909 Ford Model T

The 1909 Ford Model T was the first production year of the famous automobile that revolutionized the car industry and turned Henry Ford into a household name. The car featured a four-cylinder, 20 horsepower engine and a two-speed transmission, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour.

Compared to its contemporaries, the Model T was affordable, reliable, and easy to maintain. It was also the first car to be built on an assembly line, which enabled Ford to produce large quantities of the car at a lower cost, making it accessible to the average American.

The car was available in a variety of body styles, including a two-seater “runabout”, a four-seater touring car, and a six-seater “town car”. It also featured several innovative design elements, such as a detachable cylinder head and a magneto ignition system.

By the end of its production run in 1927, Ford had produced over 15 million Model T’s, cementing its status as one of the most important cars in history.
