Here is a pic showing 17 new Fords outside a dealership. The year was 1917. There is one brass front car there. Likely an unsold 1916 model. The building still stands today. Here is a current shot with my car out front.
Must have been a good sale, only one car left...LOL
Well, I don't know Peter. Ninety six years later and they are still not sold out. They have been asking for a new shipment of the "Model U" but, Ford hasn't delivered yet.
Ford is just not the same since Henry died.
Considering the shape the company was in when Henry died, it's a good thing he did.
