1907 Ford Model K Touring Car

Summary

The expensive Model K moved Ford Motor Company into the high-priced market, something Henry Ford didn't like. Priced at $2,500, the six-cylinder vehicle was a slow seller, further convincing Ford that low-priced cars targeted to the mass market were the company's future.
