Usage conditions apply
The Ford Motor Company manufactured this Model T Coupe in 1924. When Henry Ford entered the car business in the late
1890s, he was one of a slew of inventors and entrepreneurs trying to break into the business. By the early 1900s, there were hundreds of small companies producing a small numbers of cars for rich Americans. Ford’s adoption of the assembly line produced a relatively reliable and cheap automobile in large enough quantities to sell more than 15 million Model T's from 1908 until 1927—making it the most popular automobile of the time. This car has a 1922 engine numbered 6,179,956. The museum purchased this Ford Model T coupe in 1970 from a member of a Model T club.
