The infamous Henry Ford truly brought technological revolution to the United States with both his assembly line of 1913 and the first production of the Model T in 1908. Ford’s goal was to bring the luxury of a car to the average American worker- something that had not been done before. His design was a real game changer in the automobile world, not only was his design durable and reliable, it also provided relatively easy assembly and fast production. Though the Model T was technically cheaper than the average car in the early twentieth century it still cost a pretty penny at $825- $18,000 today when adjusted for inflation. This was way more attainable as their ads mentioned: “No car under $2,000 offers more and no car over $2,000 offers more except the trimmings.” Part of what made the vehicle so cheap was the interchangeable parts that made the base structure which reduced waste and made for faster assembly. Another feature the Model T offered was the variety of models it offered: a five-seat touring, a two-seat runabout, and a seven-seat town car. These cars included several other more-than-phenomenal features for their time as they were constructed from a new light weight, fire treated steel that was durable and they were light weight at just one thousand, two hundred pounds. Additionally, the engine was a four cylinder singular machine which made it easy to fix, it offered twenty-two horse power, went up to forty miles an hour, and could run on hemp-based oil. Ford really revolutionized the car game when he perfected his mass assembly like five years later. After 1913 his factories were able to produce thousands of cars a week, which resulted in a total of fifteen million cars between 1913 and 1927. Unfortunately for the homely Model T, America’s tastes began to change by the 1920s and the people wanted more than just a durable car; they wanted speed, style, and more versatility. By 1927 America had enough of the car that revolutionized the automobile market, and it was finally retired.
