Founded by Henry Ford, the company and the man are credited with putting the nation on wheels. In fact, Ford is so intrinsically intertwined with the history of the automobile; many people credit him with inventing the car. While that isn’t true, Ford is definitely one of the pioneers in the field of automotive transportation.
Ford’s Model T was the first truly affordable American car. Revolutionary in design, it was easy to drive, easy to work on, and hugely affordable to purchase. Introduced at the price of $825, with each passing year the price fell, as Ford got more and more efficient at building it. The price finally settled at $360 in 1916. Ultimately some 15 million Model Ts were built.
But that was just the first of the new Ford cars to capture the American imagination. The 1964 Ford Mustang was an instant best seller. In continuous production ever since its introduction, the Mustang also caused every other American manufacturer to come up with a competing model. In the 1980s, the company introduced the Taurus and in the process revolutionized the American family car. Further, the Ford F-150 pickup truck is consistently one of the best-selling vehicles in the country.
