APRIL 3 – 9: 1927 FORD MODEL T - FIFTEEN-MILLIONTH FORD
The impact of the Ford Model T on American history is undisputed. This touring car, with hand stamped VIN 15000000, marked the end of “Tin Lizzy’s” almost 19-year production run that totaled over 15 million Fords. On May 26, 1927, Edsel and Henry Ford drove it out of the Highland Park Plant to commemorate the end of Model T production. It wasn’t until 1972 that the Model T’s production figure was bested by the Volkswagen Beetle.
