On June 16, 1903, Ford Motor Company was officially founded. At first, the restless Henry Ford held the position of vice president, with John S. Gray in charge of the first steps of the company, although only three years later, Henry was already at the helm of the company.
The two-liter Model A was the first vehicle to leave one of its plants, and it was not until 1908 that the successful Model T was born, which was a real revolution. His arrival on the streets was a veritable tide that kept him going until 1927 and saw in 1916 the milestone that more than half of the vehicles that rolled on the cobblestones were units of this model.
The growth of the company is practically exponential and already under the charge of Edsel Ford, son of Henry, the company acquired Lincoln Motor Company in 1922, became involved in the manufacture of aircraft and finally reached the round figure of 10 million Model T built in 1924. Such was the expansion that only three years later, Henry had his picture taken next to the vehicle that commemorated the 15 million units assembled.
In 1954 Ford decided to start marketing the Thunderbird, a car that would be replaced a decade later by the first generation of the Mustang. The affectionately nicknamed 'Pony', a best-seller from the first day (22,000 orders were made as soon as the news of the start of production was known) was finally named Mustang despite the fact that one of the options had been call it Cougar, a name that would eventually receive the small two-door sports car.
The original designs of the Ford Mustang were a success, however, the model that has endured as a classic of the Mustang family is undoubtedly the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. With Carroll Shelby at the helm of Ford's racing program, the distinctive white stripes that crossed his modified cars such as the also-famous Ford GT40 became famous.
For February of 1970, and after the fall in the sale of racing cars of the Ford-Shelby line, Ford concludes the contract with Carroll Shelby to market the Thunderbird, a car that would be replaced a decade later by the first generation of the Mustang.
