1913 Model T Ford
After 20 years of experimentation, Henry Ford finally saw the fruits of his labor in October 1908, with the introduction of the Model T.
In October 1913, mass production of the Model T began at Ford's Highland Park, Michigan, Assembly Plant.
Henry Ford had previously organized men and components to enhance Model T production, but the moving assembly line quickly improved chassis assembly speed from 12 hours and eight minutes to one hour and 33 minutes.
