Henry Ford and Edsel Ford Introducing the 1928 Ford Model A at the Ford Industrial Exposition in New York City

Summary

Henry Ford and Edsel Ford introduced the Model A on December 1, 1927. After 19 years of the Model T, the public was eager for Ford's new car. It took six months of intensive design work and plant retooling, but the Model A was a hit. In both mechanics and style, the car was more sophisticated than its predecessor.
