Henry Ford’s design of the Model T between 1906 and 1908 was an extraordinary achievement. At that time, the automobile industry was still in an experimental phase, yet Mr Ford’s groundbreaking design lasted without major change for nearly two decades. More than 15 million Model Ts were built: performance and price gave the car an edge. In this book, published to celebrate the centenary of the Model T, John Duncan explains why it was such a phenomenon. The reasons for the car’s success can be found in its brilliant mechanical design. The aim of this book is to provide a fresh and concise look at the design, and to show how Henry Ford’s personality is reflected in the car he created. ‘Any Color - So Long As It’s Black’ is simply written and will appeal to anyone who would like to understand what is so remarkable about the Model T and why it is a landmark in engineering history.
