1913 Ford Model T Touring Car

Description
Few people could afford the Model T when it was introduced in 1908. But Ford’s moving assembly line increased production volume, and prices fell dramatically from $850 to $260 by 1925. The Model T gave personal mobility to more than 15 million rural and urban Americans and ushered in the automobile age. Light and powerful, it had a three-point suspension that could negotiate rough roads, and parts were available at dealers in small and large communities across America. This car belonged to Harvey W. Locke, a designer and inventor of cameras and camera parts in Rochester, New York.
