The Ford Model A

See Nov. 20th entry.

My uncle did some more research on Henry Ford's Model A to determine what the cost of a Model A Touring Car like the one presented to the farmer would be.

He discovered that Model As got between 24-29 mpg, not bad for back then or even now. I sure wish my Dodge Dakota got that good of a mileage, and it's a 2005.

A two-seater Model A Roadster cost $350. A fully-tricked out Model A Touring car went for $1400.

Ford often toured to visit dealers and to check out what modifications were being made on his cars. If he liked it, he'd send the specifications back to his factory.
