1916 Model T Roadster

The Ford Model T is often called a “Tin Lizzie” and was first produced in 1908, then for nearly 20 more years. There was little apparent change in the 1916 model, aside from the diminished use of brass trim and the magneto horn becoming standard on all models. The priciest model available was the Center Door Sedan which sold for $740.

Highlights: Fiscal year production was over 500,000 cars for the first time, and Ford claimed calendar year production to be over 734,000 vehicles.
