The recent 2 hour documentary on Henry Ford said that From 1903 to 1908, Henry Ford created new prototypes starting with A, then continued through the alphabet until striking gold with the Model T. That's 19 prototypes before hitting on the T. I'd be interested in seeing Models A through S in order to see the evolution of the Ford that finally resulted in the T Model. Jim Patrick
From Ford Motor Company (1952) and "The Ford Times" (not sure of the volume).
On error, the Model N was not available until July 1906.
This does not include prototypes (a Model G and H were included in an expense report under "experimental"). Also, air cooled and coupes were shown at an auto show in 1904, and Henry Ford was seen driving in Detroit in a six cylinder NRS car, so who knows what other alphabet cars may have been on the drawing board but did not make it to production
Thank you Rob. Very interesting. Is that an original you scanned, or from a book you have (pages 262 & 263) or another source? Could I get you to e-mail me a copy so I can enlarge it for a closer look? Thanks again. Jim Patrick
