-- October 1, 1908, is marked as the birthday of perhaps the greatest singular automotive creation. It is the day the first Ford Model T was produced. Ford's gift to the world brought a revolution in the automobile industry. It was the perfect combination of low price, technology, and style. It featured a hand-crank motor until 1919, and its 4-cylinder engine produced around 20 horsepower. The first Ford Model T cost $850 in 1908, and with the introduction of Ford's assembly line production, the price dropped to $300 in 1927.

-- Henry Ford's Model T forever changed the world. The car made for the great multitude (as Ford put it) first debuted in 1908 and proved so affordable and so popular that fifteen million were sold through 1927. The Tin Lizzie was the first automobile to be mass-produced on moving assembly lines and built using interchangeable parts. It proved tough and reliable in everyday use, and cheap enough to spawn the automobile revolution: the car cost $850 in 1909 but amazingly by the 1920s, the price had dropped to a mere $260 due to the perfection of production techniques and economy of scale.

Catherine

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
