From dust jacket: Before the Model T was introduced late in 1908, the automobile was generally out of reach to most people. Perhaps the wealthiest family in town owned an automobile but, for many, the automobile was merely a dream. The Model T changed all that and altered the lives of people around the world. Henry Fod and a few handpicked Ford Motor Co. employees had a vision of creating a car that would be light, durable, practical and affordable. The result was the Model T, a car that changed the production, pricing and ownership of automobiles forever and influenced all forms of industrial production. The Model T succeeded beyond the wildest dreams of everyone involved. In just a few years, the car was an icon, comparable to themodern laptop computer or color televisions. It was found in every hamlet and corner of the world. The Model T truly became Ford's Universal Car. The Legendary Model T Ford is the story of both this interesting car and its era. The Model T was loved and cursed, a scene-stealer in movies and the subject of post-card humor and other jokes. Families posed with it and the car gave them a new independence. You'll enjoy stories of Model Ts from people who owned them. You'll see examples from every year of production. You'll learn more about the accessory aftermarket the Spartan Model T inspired. You'll discover more about Model Ts in racing and in movies. You'll learn about people who preserve and collect them today. All this plus collector prices and original list prices of each year of the Model Ts. Production of the Model T ended in 1927, but flivver fever has never really left us.
