Ford Model A (1903)

Ford Motor Company was launched by Henry Ford on June 16, 1903. The first car offered for sale was the Model A. It was described as the most perfect machine on the market and so simple that a boy of 15 can run it. The 1903 Ford Model A had a two-cylinder engine displacing 100 cubic inches and producing 8 horsepower. It could reach 30 mph on smooth roads, which were quite rare at the time. The Ford Model A had a wheelbase of 72 inches and the car weighted about 1,250 pounds.
