1927 Ford Model T


 (click on photos for larger image)

I found this 1927 Ford Model T in Niagara wine country on the Niagara Peninsula.  This Ford is made in Canada (it says so right under the radiator fill cap) so presumably it was manufactured in Windsor or Oakville Ontario, if the Oakville plant was in operation in 1927.

This car was a classic model.  There were 18 million of them made in the United States and they were the car of the century that gave North Americans an affordable car made on an assembly line.

This car is one of the key inventions of the last century and perhaps in the 100 most significant inventions that brought us along on our development path in mechanization and technology.
