Getting to know Henry Ford...July 30, 1863 to April 7, 1947.

Henry Ford, a futuristic, visionary thinker was born near what is New Dearborn, Michigan.

In 1896, Henry built his first automobile in a shed behind his house and four years later in the early 1900's, he said, "I will build a car for the great multitude." He added, "it will be so low in price that a man making a good salary will be able to own one!"

The original Model T sold for $850. and was one of the first automobiles to be produced using a moving assembly line.  The assembly line reduced the time it took to build a Model T from 14 hours to a little more than 90 minutes.
