1914 Ford Model T Truck … America’s 1st affordable auto

About this vehicle

The Ford Model T is an automobile that was produced by the Ford Motor Company October 1, 1908 to May 26, 1927. Our 1914 Model T Truck served as a moving and storage vehicle in Connecticut. The Model T model is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, which made car travel available to middle-class Americans and provided businesses with service vehicles. The relatively low price for the auto was partly the result of Ford’s efficient fabrication including assembly line production instead of individual handcrafting. More than 300,000 of these popular cars were produced which was only available in black. The Model T was mainly designed by an American (Childe Harold Wills) and two Hungarian engineers (Joseph A. Galamb & Eugene Farkas). The Model T was colloquially known as the “Tin Lizzie”, “Leaping Lena” or “flivver”. Top speed: 45mph.
