The Ford Model T (also known as the Tin Lizzie and also the Flivver) was an automobile produced by Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927. The Ford Model T was named the world's most influential car of the twentieth century in an international poll.
The Model T is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile. The success of the vehicle was in part to Ford's innovations, including Assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting, as well as the concept of paying the workers a high enough wage that would make employees a ready made market for the car itself; for example, in 1914, an assembly line worker could buy a Model T with four months' pay.
