In December of 1924 the Model T reached a low price of $290 in an effort to be affordable for the average factory worker or school teacher who earned about $400 a year. By 1925, one half of all the cars in the world were Model T’s.

The later Model T’s were sold as a very basic car available only in black. Black paint dried faster allowing the cars to be assembled faster. The front bumper was extra and there was no electric-starter. Henry Ford reused the wood from parts crates for the floor boards of the cars.

1924 was the first year of the 4 door sedan. Prior cars had 3 doors. The upper half of the windshield tilts out for air flow. This vehicle has a lot of accessories, or after market items, such as a “Fat Man’s wheel”, a climber spot light, a nickel radiator shell, and a front bumper.
