It’s fair to say Ford has accomplished a lot in the past 100 years of their company’s history. In 1896, Henry Ford built a motorized vehicle on four bicycle wheels before joining a group that founded that Detroit automobile company in 1899.
In 1903, Ford had spent almost all of its original investment cash by the time it sold its first Model A. Luckily; the company turned a profit of $37,000.
A year later, in 1904, Ford established its first international plant to sell cars in Canada and across the British empire.
The Ford logo hasn’t changed much the past 100-plus years since its inception. Childe Harold Willis designed the Ford logo with a stencil set in 1907, with the trademark oval being incorporated during 1927.
Labor Laws and Pay
Henry Ford is an essential figure in labor law history. During 1914, Ford instituted the $5 a day pay rate, which was double the average pay rate at the time for factory workers and helped establish the future middle class.
While workers appreciated increased pay, Henry Ford additionally reduced the standard workday from nine hours to eight hours, which lead to more than 10,000 workers lining up outside of the Ford factory seeking employment.
Famous Ford Models
With so many influential Ford models having been released in the past 100 plus years, it’s hard to narrow the list down to just a couple.
In early Ford history, the Model T helped introduce the world to the automobile via a car that was durable, affordable, and straightforward. The Motel T utilized specific engineering and part usage to stand firm against a lack of paved roads in the United States during the time.
At the time of the Model T’s release, most automobiles for luxury’s most couldn’t afford, but the Model T changed the accessibility of cars forever.
During 1966, Ford’s GT40 Mk became the car that broke Ferrari’s six-year racing win record at Le Mans to become the first American manufacturer to win the race. The victory in 1966 was the beginning of four consecutive victories for Ford and led to a release of a version of the GT vehicle in 2004.
