Ch. 7 roaring 20's
|an entrepreneur and inventor who developed the Model T car
|built on an assembly line. Sold at a low price and all looked exactly alike and the same color - black. Produced from 1908 – 1927. By 1913, 40% of the cars in the US were Model T’s. By 1920, half of the cars in the world were Model T’s.
|workers stand in one place and put parts of the cars together as they go by on a moving belt. Ford’s workers could build a car in an hour and a half when it took other cars 12 hours to build without the assembly line.
|Ford's first assembly line factory to produce Model T cars. Would become the center of the U.S auto industry.
