#AceHistoryNews – May.26: The Model T was responsible for accelerating the automobile’s introduction into American society during the first quarter of the 20th century: Introduced in October 1908, the Model T—also known as the “Tin Lizzie”—weighed some 1,200 pounds, with a 20-horsepower, four-cylinder engine. It got about 13 to 21 miles per gallon of gasoline and could travel up to 45 mph #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8626: Initially selling for around $850 (around $20,000 in today’s dollars), the Model T would later sell for as little as $260 (around $6,000 today) for the basic no-extras model: Largely due to the Model T’s incredible popularity, the U.S. government made construction of new roads one of its top priorities by 1920. By 1926, however, the Lizzie had become outdated in a rapidly expanding market for cheaper cars…………………After production officially ended the following day, Ford factories shut down in early June, and some 60,000 workers were laid off. No car in history, however, had the impact—both actual and mythological—of the Model T: Authors like Ernest Hemingway, E.B. White and John Steinbeck featured the Tin Lizzie in their prose, while the great filmmaker Charlie Chaplin immortalized it in satire in his 1928 film “The Circus.” #ModelT #Ford #HenryFord #TinLizzie #CarHistory #USHistory #history #OTD
