"(Ambrose, Steven/Brinkley, Douglass) This vehicle had four wheels and resembled that of a bicycle, it used a tiller for steering such as a boat would, and had two forward speeds but no reverse gear (Ambrose, Steven/Brinkley, Douglass). Henry sold this prototype of a car for $200 and then began to watch as the automobile industry started by him began to expand (Ambrose, Steven/Brinkley, Douglass). Once Ford built his own factory, he started to think up a plan to build a car that was both efficient and affordable that most people could have. This car finally emerged from a secret room that he had built in his factory, it was to be called the Model T. For eight hundred and twenty five dollars a customer could purchase a Model T. The Model T was a light 1,200 lbs, had a relatively powerful 20 horsepower engine, and was fairly easy to drive with a two speed foot controlled transmission (Kimes, Beverly).
