1914 Ford Model T - Factory Replicas
THE MODEL T IS BACK!
Ford Press Release
Dearborn, MI, September 6, 2001 -Ford Motor Company announced today that it is building six Model Ts that replicate in true fashion the original 1914 Model T. The six 2003 Model T-100s will be donated to museums, which have already been identified.
Four of the cars were donated today to Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. They will be used as part of an exhibit scheduled to open in April 2003 that is tentatively called "The Henry Ford Story" in Greenfield Village. Guests visiting the exhibit will be offered a ride in one of the Model Ts.
The 2003 Model T-100s are being made by hand and replicate in true fashion the 1914 Model T. The six new models are identical to the originals, from the throttle to the engine crank.
"All of the parts in these vehicles are new," said William Leland, Model T-100 project manager. "The company worked with dozens of craftsmen and suppliers to make the parts used in these new vehicles, and the results are astounding."
The company chose to reproduce the 1914 Model T for a number of reasons. It was the first vehicle built on Henry Ford's innovative moving assembly line, the first vehicle to be offered "in any color as long as it's black," and 1914 was the first year of the revolutionary $5 workday wage.
The Model T was introduced on October 1, 1908 and ceased production on May 26, 1927. During that time more than 15, 000,000 Model Ts were built and sold worldwide. In 1914, the company produced 300,000 units.
"The Model T is the car that essentially launched the company," said John Rintamaki, group vice president and chief of staff, Ford Motor Company. "With the Model T, Henry Ford put the world on wheels by producing an affordable vehicle for the masses."

Benz produced the first modern automobile in 1886 and Henry Ford began mass production of the model T in 1914, 12 years after Oldsmobile.

From WikipediaThe Ford Model T (colloquially known as the Tin Lizzie, T‑Model Ford, or T) is an automobile that was produced by Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company from September 1908 to October 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting.
