The new Model T Ford was introduced in October of 1908. It was an entirely new American Automobile when compared to the previous 1908 Ford models. It was only built as a open Touring Car at first but within a few months other body styles were added to the line.

Many historians think the Ford Model T was the most significant automobile of all time.

The Ford Model T was responsible for putting the United States on wheels during its production run from 1908 to 1927. Production increased from 10,000 units in 1909 to 2 million units by 1927. By 1913 Ford outproduced all other American Automobile manufacturers combined.

All Model T Ford's had a wheelbase of 100 inches, a tread of 56 inches, 30 inch x 3 inch front and 30 inch x 3 1/2 inch rear wheels and tires.

The 1909 Ford Model T was equipped with a four cylinder engine that had a displacement of 176.7 cubic inches and was rated at 22.5 horsepower. The new four cylinder had a removeable cylinder head that was quite unusual for the time. It had three main bearings and solid lifters. Torque was rated at 83 at 900 rpm. Cooling was by thermosyphon action.

The Model T chassis featured transverse springs front and rear. The use of vanadium steel slmost throughout made for a stronger yet lighter frame that gave the Model T impressive performance. The front axle was a forged "I" beam with spindles that had integral arms. The Model T used a planetary two speed forward and reverse transmission, multiple disc clutch and torque tube drive. The rear axle was drawn steel rather than casting.

Windshields and tops were optional equipment on open cars. Gas headlights, speedometers, robe rails, Prest-O-Lite tanks, foot rest, horn, car covers, tire chains, spare tire carriers, bumpers and other accessories were installed by Ford at the factory. By the end of 1909 most of these items were standard equipment. Oil cowl lamps and taillights were standard equipment on early Model T Fords. The Bodies were built by the Pontiac Body Co. Body colors were black, red, gray and green. The 1910 Ford Model T followed the 1909 Fords.
