Ford Classic Cars for Sale

Henry Ford, born in Michigan in 1863, founded the Ford Motor Company in Detroit in 1903. in 1913, he was the first to use an assembly line in manufacturing in the US. In the two years after it was founded, Ford only produced around 1700 vehicles. To increase the purchasing power of his employees, he paid them wages above market rate.

The history of Ford

Perfecting assembly line work enabled Ford to produce cheaper and faster than other manufacturers. As a result, the time it took to assemble a chassis dropped from 12 to 1.5 hours. Thanks to the relatively low price and high production volume, Ford became one of the most popular car brands, making every second car in the US a Ford Model T 15 years after the company was founded. To maintain the brands philosophy and continue production at affordable prices after losing its market share in 1920, Ford completely removed all optional features. At the same time, other companies such as General Motors produced lavish cars with luxurious features and raised the credit line of their customers to enable them to afford these expensive cars. Ford did not approve of this approach as it was the company's opinion that borrowing hurt the economy. In the early 1940s, Ford manufactured bomber aircraft in another subsidiary. After this line of manufacturing was shut down, it was sold to Kaiser Motors. In 1955 Ford went public, and today it is the world’s fifth largest car manufacturer.

Ford Classics

One of the most famous and most popular Ford classics is the Shelby Mustang GT, a car that originated from racing and was designed by race car driver Caroll Shelby in 1965. In combination with its powerful engine, it made the Mustang an American legend. The car was produced in three generations, where later models saw some adjustments to the needs of regular drivers. Another classic Ford oldtimer is the Escort 1, first produced in 1968. With a powerful engine and a unique shape, which according to some resembled a dog bone or a Coke bottle, it quickly gained recognition. Another popular oldtimer is the Ford Taunus 1, produced between 1970 and 1982 in 34 different versions.
