1927

On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the fifteen millionth Ford roll off the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan. It was a 1927 Ford Model T Touring Car.

Widely known as the "Tim Lizzie" the Model T Ford became the butt of a thousand jokes.

But it was this American Automobile, more than all others combined that was responsible for putting the United States on wheels. Yearly production of the Model T in 1908 was about 10,000 cars and nearly two million 15 years later when the 1926 Ford arrived. A choice of colors was originally available, but from 1913 to 1925 the car was mass-produced in only one color - black.

Ford's market share fell to just 36% by the mid-1920s as rival automobile makers ate away at the aging Model T's sales with fresher, more up-to-date competitive designs. Within the Ford Motor Co. some advocated major changes in the Ford automobile. So during 1926 the company's design engineers were busily at work.

The end of the Model T was officially announced by Henry Ford and Edsel Ford on May 26, 1927. Shown above is Henry Ford driven by Edsel Ford out of the Highland Park Plant in the fifteen-millionth Model T.
