Model T Ford Assembly Video
« on: October 19, 2011, 12:58:44 PM »
Everyone liked the 36 Chev video, so I thought another was in order. Equal time for the competitor I suppose.

It's a very different perspective from the Chevy film, but a real hoot.  Thanks for sending this in.

Henry Ford did not pay $5 a day out of the goodness of his heart, he did it because there was a
about a 300 worker per day turn over. Many men did not stay to lunch time. Also the $5 per day
was only for white,married men that went to Church every Sunday.

That was great.  I read some where that Ford did not invent the auto assembly line, that it was Oldsmobile that invented it

Thats exactly correct, Olds factory burned down though and partly because of that Ford got the credit.
Always looking for what interests me, anything early Dodge Brothers/Graham Brothers trucks ( pre 1932 or so ) and slant six / Super six parts.
