Henry FORD
1908 - First Model-T car is produced by Henry Ford (United States)

The Ford Motor Company from now until July will manufacture in quantities only the four-cylinder Rumble Seat Runabout, Model "S," and the six-cylinder Runabout Model K. By cutting down the variety of models their factory can put its best energy toward bringing out the Model "T" Touring Car and Taxicab on schedule time. The Model "T" four-cylinder Touring Car will be ready for delivery in July, and the Brooklyn distributers, Bishop, McCormick & Bishop, Inc. of 20 Halsey street, expect to break all sales records during that and the following months. The Model "T" sells for $850, the Taxicab for $950.
