“The Model T defined the 20th Century landscape.” 

With that, the Historic Vehicle Association cranks up its multipart video series titled “The 15 Millionth Ford Model T,” about Henry Ford’s pivotal product that quite literally put Americans on wheels. 

Part 1 of the series, A Motorcar for the Multitude, traces the early life of Henry Ford and the beginnings of his Detroit car company.  Featuring early 20th Century photos and video, it shows the conditions that created the demand for an automobile for the average American rather than a plaything for the wealthy.

Next week, we’ll see Part 2 of the series, titled Everyone’s on the Move, which shows the fruition of Ford’s vision as the Model T turns out to be the perfect vehicle for its time, and sells by the millions.  

The HVA produced the series in partnership with Hagerty collector car insurance and valuation, the Henry Ford Museum and the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.
