Ford Model T, 1908
This week marks the 100th anniversary of the first production Ford Model T that is often attributed to “putting America on wheels”. The first Ford Model T rolled out of the factory on September 27, 1908 and was considered at the time to be the first affordable mass production vehicle for the everyday family. Ford used interchangeable parts and moving assembly lines to bring the cost of the Model T down to a reasonable price.
The Ford Motor Company revolutionized American life by producing the Model T, allowing families the luxury of living farther from work and essentially giving good reason to pave new roads all over the United States. Today, Ford is the 3rd largest automobile maker in the United States and the 4th largest in the world.
