1919 Ford

In 1919, when nearly half of the automobiles built in America were Model T Fords, Henry Ford fitted all his cars, for the first time, with electric starters and demountable rims. Thereafter, women could drive the Model T without hand-cranking the engine, and flat tires could be changed more easily.

For 1919 Ford offered four body styles - runabout, touring, coupe, and sedan. The company also built a 1-ton truck.

In attempting to explain the broad acceptance of the "Universal Car" as the Model T was called, the 1919 sales catalog identified one of Henry Ford's fundamentals in designing a car: "There must be no mysteries in its mechanism calling for interpretation, or the ability of a skilled mechanic."
