The story of the Ford Motor Company's Model T is the story of the world's first successful mass-produced automobile, affectionately known as the Tin Lizzie or Flivver, with an astonishing 15 million produced between 1908 and 1927! Henry Ford was not the first man to dream about producing an automobile for the mass public - Benz had tried several times, and so had Oldsmobile Curved Dash - but he was the first to be successful, with a combination of drive, ambition, pricing, marketing, shrewd and ruthless dealing, and the setting up of the world's first mass-production assembly line. Even an inveterate optimist and driven man like Ford could have not predicted the far-reaching changes this one car, launched in 1908, would set in motion; his idea of a low-cost, easy maintenance , reliable "universal car" has changed our world and lives for good.One hundred years later, this illustrated history looks back at the beloved Tin Lizzie, and charts its history. Design considerations - high ground clearance to allow for the abysmal state of the roads at the time - construction, and the lasting legacy this has left on our world, taking in the mechanical, manufacturing, and marketing innovations that the car's production entailed. Truly a book for any car enthusiast!
