Hello,

I'm looking for a detailed list of all the steps required to build a Model T Ford in order (yep, I saw the History Channel documentary and was intrigued).

Thank you so much in advance!

Barb

If you mean an individual assembling a car, there is a step-by-step on disassembly and reassembly in the Ford service manual:

If you mean the processes used on the Ford assembly line, then you want the book "The Ford Methods and Ford Shops":

The History Channel didn't really do the math.
Nor did they do much research on Henry Ford or the Model T for that matter! :-)

The detailed steps are in Ford Service, the Model T Ford service manual.

You can find these steps in Chapter 11 "Assembling the Car" Illustrated steps of the install of the front axle to the frame, all the way to placing the hood on the Ford.

Chapter 11, paragraphs 62 to 145.

The above paragraphs total 83.

A point of reference, the car Ford used is a 1924 Touring car.
