The Ford Model T was produced between 1908 and 1927, and is credited with being the very first 'mass-market', affordable car. Until the appearance of the Model T, cars had been the preserve of the rich and were generally rare, expensive and relatively unreliable. The Model T brought motoring to the middle classes, and around 16.5 million examples were built over the lifetime of the car. Henry Ford and his engineering team refined the idea of the assembly line, greatly increasing its efficiency, and lowering the cost of production, which was key to the Model T's success. Ford Model T Enthusiasts' Manual provides details of the car's origins, design, production and evolution, along with a look at restoring and running a car today.
