The car that started mass motorization was the American Ford Model T. This car was so tremendously successful that many people tend to forget that the Ford Motor Company of Detroit USA had a history before the Model T. Starting from 1903 with the Model A (shown above) founder Henry Ford and his team went through 19 letters of the alphabet before the Model T was introduced in 1908. Some of these cars were experimental or special models that never went into production. Ultimately 8 models reached production status before the Model T: the models A, B, C, F, K, N, R and S.
When Henry Ford started the company that was to become world's second largest car manufacturer he promised to "build a motor car for the great multitude which will be so low in price that no man will be unable to own one". In this tour RitzSite will show you around the cars Ford put on the road before the fulfillment of his promise.
