The Ford Motor Company
From 1965 to 1990



 
 
 


 
 

 

Two of the most remembered Ford grills

But what is this one ?

A Brief History of Henry Ford
and the Ford Motor Car Company
The Ford Motor Car Company started with one man's dream of putting America on wheels.
That man was Henry Ford

Born July 30, 1863 Henry Ford, grew up on the family farm in what is today Dearborn, Michigan.
Henry's childhood was that of a typical boy living in rural nineteenth century, going to school and doing farm chores. He had a dislike for farm work but an interest mechanical things which showed 
at an early age.

Henry  Ford left home in 1879 for the nearby city of Detroit. He was sixteen at the time and going to work as an apprentice machinist. He worked at this for three years and then returned to Dearborn. Upon his return he operated and repaired steam engines, finding occasional work in a Detroit factory. He also over-hauled his father's farm implements in his spare time. 
In 1888 he married Clara Bryant and supported himself and his wife by running a sawmill.

In 1891, Ford he went to work for the Edison Illuminating Company in Detroit as an engineer.
He showed a great interest in industrial pursuits. He was promoted to Chief Engineer in 1893.
This gave him enough time and money to devote attention to his personal experiments on internal combustion engines.
These experiments led to the completion of his own self-propelled vehicle, the Quadricycle in 1896.

Although Ford was not the first to build a self-propelled vehicle, he was, however, one of several automotive pioneers who helped this country become a nation of motorists.

 In 1899 Ford quit his job at Edison and with the help of some investors, he started the Detroit Auto Company 
which ended in failure.

Ford moved back to his father's home in 1901. He built a car on his own and with it beat Alexander Winton in an automobile race. This attracted more investors and enabled him to form the Henry Ford Co.
Ford withdrew from that company and it became Cadillac in 1902.
In 1903 he formed the Ford Motor Co. The Model A was produced in a rented plant on Mack Ave.
This arrangement last for one year and in 1903 he built a plant on Piquette Ave.
This building is still standing and being restored.
In the same year Ford of Canada was founded in Windsor Ontario.
By 1906 Ford had overtaken Olds, Buick and Cadillac combined to become No.1 auto maker in U.S.
In the same year Henry Ford became the company president and majority owner.
The famous model T was introduced in 1908 and as we all know the rest is HISTORY.

A number of years ago I saw a one page calendar that showed all the Ford 
pickup trucks from the first one to the present day. I thought what a nice idea.
I thought that I might try something similar with some of the car pictures I have collected.
I have been collecting pictures of Studebakers, Packards Nash, Hudson and Jeeps
for some time now and I first wrote a web page on this page on the Studebaker.
Then one on Jeeps  and Packard followed. Then came one Nash and Hudson. 
I have since added a page on old Pickup Trucks , Hudson. Essex and Terrplanes of 
Australia , Volkswagen  Kaiser and Henry J and then with the
help of one of my visitors have written one on the Crosley.
All my previous pages had been on orphaned cars but now I thought
I would try one a bit different. I wrote a page on the Chevrolet and now the Ford

These pictures came for a number of sources including web
pages of the manufacturer, news groups and my own.
Since most of these pictures came from news groups there may be a
chance that your car is shown here.

I would like to invite any one that has a favorite Ford picture or a Web Page
that they would like added to this page to E mail me a copy.

1974 Ford Torino
This car is owned by Jack Hamlett
He rescued it from the crusher and has restored it. 
It has 116,000 miles and is his daily driver.  In repainting the car,
he tried to ensure that it would never rust out again.  Hence, ite
now has stainless steel rocker panels and stainless 
steel rear fenders. A lady in Florida has about a 1964 Mercury
Comet with 540,000 miles.  My goal is to run this
Torino for at least 500,000 miles too.

This car is owned by Wesley Willison from Southern California USA. This car is driven almost daily.
As most of you know most of my car pages only go to around the
early 1970's However this car is owned by a person that has several cars which he has submitted to the site. These are a 1921 Chev, a 1941 Dodge, a 1948 Lincoln Continental. a 1966 Ford Mustand and this Continental. I felt that it would be nice to show all Wesley's cars. Besides that it is a classic.
