1909-1927 Model T & TT Parts
On September 27, 1908, the first Model Ts left the Ford factory in Detroit, Michigan (following the same naming conventions still used today, they were considered part of the 1909 production year). The Model T was the first vehicle to be mass-produced on an assembly line, which lowered production costs and made it more affordable to the public. Up until then, vehicles had always been marketed to the upper class, but the Model T’s affordability made it accessible to middle class families. This phenomenon forever changed the way cars were marketed – from a frivolous luxury item to a basic necessity.
Canada played a major role in Ford’s worldwide success. A Ford manufacturing plant was set up in Walkerville, Ontario to take care of Model T production for Canada and the countries of the British Empire (but not Britain itself). A total of 757,888 Model Ts were produced in Canada from 1909 to 1927, compared with a total of 15 million in the United States.
In 1917, Ford continued its success by introducing its first truck, the Model TT. The design was was based on the Model T, but with a heavier frame and rear axle. Both the Model T and Model TT were produced until 1927 when they were replaced with the Model A and Model AA.
