The Ford Motor Company was the predominant motor manufacturer of the pre-war era with its indefatigable Model T outselling every other car produced -and at one point accounting for nearly half of all the cars on the road.

The company also set the benchmark in motor manufacturing with its automated mass production process ensuring cars could be produced muck quicker and sold much cheaper -paving the way for cars to be affordable for all members of society.

The assorted high-quality DVDs, pictures, posters and books below celebrate the early years of the Ford Motor Company and will inform and fascinate all serious Ford enthusiasts, as well as other motoring historians.
