Volume 1 - The English Model T Ford - A Century of the Model T in Britain

The Book


One hundred years ago the world’s most successful car ever, Henry Ford’s Model T was first shown to the world at the London Motor Show, Olympia on November 13th 1908. 

Ford Made in England
A new book has been written by three highly knowledgeable experts and published specifically to coincide with this significant centenary.  Unlike the many existing books about the American Model T, this book concentrates on the unique history of the Model T Ford in Britain.  The Model T in both car and commercial versions was built in Ford’s largest overseas factory at Trafford Park, Manchester from 1911 until the end of production in 1927.  Right hand drive versions as well as a number of specifically English Model Ts were designed and produced on the first moving production line in Europe.

Illustrated with over 300 period pictures, the book draws on significant previously unpublished original UK factory and dealer records and on contemporary documentation amassed by the authors, the Model T Ford Register of Great Britain and its members.

  • Sales, Manufacture and Price information
  • Factory models, both car and commercial
