The impact of the Ford Model T on American history is undisputed. Henry Ford’s greatest achievement, the Model T transformed the world and brought about mass automobility. This touring car, with hand-stamped VIN 15000000, marked the symbolic end of the revolutionary automobile’s 19 – year production run that totaled over 15 million Ford automobiles. It was driven off of the Ford Highland Park assembly line by Edsel and Henry Ford May 26, 1927 as a celebration of the end of an era.
