Henry Ford did not invent the automobile or the assembly line. However, he changed the world using a technique of the assembly line to produce cars that could be provided by all. From 1909 to 1927, built the Ford Motor Company more than 15 million Ford Model-T cars No doubt Henry Ford transformed the economic and social structure of the 20th century.
The first production Ford Model T (1909 model year) was assembled at the Piquette Avenue plant in Detroit, the first oktober 1908th During the next 19 years relatively few fundamental changes have been made in the basic design. In 1926, the design was so antiquated as the Model T could not compete with more modern offerings from competitors like Chevrolet. 1927 was the last year for the lady of Henry, the "universal car."

While Henry Ford and his team had plans for his new car, he attended a race in Florida, where he surveyed the wreckage of a French race car. He noted that it was made of a different kind of steel parts and cars were lighter than those he had already been seen. He learned that this new steel is an alloy of vanadium, and had almost three times the tensile strength of the alloys used by his contemporaries the U.S. automakers. Nobody in America knew how to vanadium Ford financed and set up a steel plant. Therefore, the only cars in the world to use vanadium steel over the next five years will be French luxury cars and the use of the Ford Model T. Ford vanadium is why so many Model T Ford have survived in today. Ford Model T, including the top 10 best-selling car in the world of all time with toyota corolla.
Ford has applied the concept of moving assembly line at its production plant in late 1913. His staff constantly monitored productive and relentlessly analyzed the statistical measures to optimize employee productivity. Over the years the Model T came in many different models, all built with essentially the same engine and chassis: the Model T roadster, coupe, coupelet, runabout, roadster torpedo, town car, touring, and fordor and Tudor sedan.
Ford Model T "in any color as long as it's black," but it is commonly attributed to him. While this saying is true for model years after 1913, earlier cars were available in green, red, blue and gray. In fact, in the first year, Ford Model T was not available in black at all. The transition to all black cars was due to the continued occupation of Ford to reduce costs, and not, as is believed to reduce drying time and thereby increase production.
Ford Model-T. The different types of paint were formulated to meet the diverse ways of applying paint to the parts, and had different drying times, depending on the coating and drying method applied to a particular part. Ford technical documents indicate that the color black was chosen because it was cheap, and it was durable. In 1926 colors other than black were once again offered in order to increase sales declining.
