  • The Model T was the first automobile mass produced on assembly lines with completely interchangeable parts, marketed to the middle class. Henry Ford is commonly reputed to have made the statement "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Actually, Model Ts in different colors were produced from 1908 to 1914, and then again from 1926 to 1927. It is often quoted that Ford chose black because the paint dried faster than other colored paints available at the time, and a faster drying paint would allow him to build cars faster as he would not have to wait for the paint to dry. This theory is not supported by fact however. Wicipedia
  • Yes, the quote was famously attributed to him but the car was produced in a variety of colours.
  • No Black Only. Anything else is not original.
  • No. Not in the beginning anyhow. That's why they were able to be made quickly and cheaper. One model, one color, no frills. And it worked very well!
  • It was all about mass production at the time. so as far as i'm concerned he made it just black. Clever Ford
