Portrait of Henry Ford, 1907

Summary

In 1907, Henry Ford and Ford Motor Company enjoyed continued success with the four-cylinder Model N, which sold some 8,423 units in the 1906-07 sales period. The N's comparatively large production and sales volumes allowed Ford to hold its price down to $600. Throughout 1907, a small team worked in secrecy on the Model N's eventual replacement: the Model T.
