Features by Year
The Model T was produced for 20 years, and some variations and innovations were introduced during that time. Here are some dates we believe are important. Before the year 1912, the body would be made of wood. These are known as ‘brass era’ models. The Model T came only in the color black after the year 1914. In the year 1915, electric headlights replaced the lamp-style headlight, and there was now a passenger door. In 1919, the electric starter was added, with 6volt batteries and generators. In 1922-23, the body was likely made from Vanadium steel alloy. Finally, a 1926-27 Model T has an all-steel body, which is the heaviest Model T ever produced by Ford Motor Company.
