Gene and Bonnie Wright standing in front of their 1927 Ford Model T at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. This 1927 Ford Model T, on loan from Gene & Bonnie Wright, was is one of the last Model T's built before production ended in May, 1927.

Production of the Model T began in October, 1908 and continued and grew for nineteen years, establishing the importance of the automobile in world culture and economy. Henry Ford's moving assembly line was the genesis of mass production.

The expression, "You can have it any color, so long as it's black." may never have been uttered by Henry Ford despite its widespread appeal and acceptance. Beginning in 1914 and ending in 1926, Ford sold the Tin Lizzie only in black for a pragmatic reason: black paint dried faster than color, allowing faster production. In 1926, to bolster sagging sales, Ford again offered colors.

With the benefits of high volume production and advancements in technology the 1927 Model T cost less than a quarter of the price of the original 1908 model.
