History of the early years of Ford Mustangs

In the early nineteen hundreds a farm boy baffled the world by inventing a machine that would get rid of the horse and carriage forever. He invented a machine that would carry people over long distances without needing to be fed, watered or rested. He also later invented a way to produce products in a new and easier way. He started out as a young farm boy that took everything apart that he could get his hands on. Then he started fixing peoples watches then as he grew older he started making other things like a quadricycle and a gas engine in the late 1890’s. His inventions changed the way that people would travel the ways that wars would be fought and captivated a nation. In my essay I’m going to focus on Ford Motor Company’s Ford Mustangs.
Ford Motor Company was started on June 16, 1903 by Henry Ford and some other investors. When Ford Motors first started it was only one of fifteen car manufacturers in Detroit and one of eighty-eight in the United States. During Fords first months in existence Ford Motor Company began to make a profit selling the Model A and Henry Ford knew that the automobile industry was going to work. Since it’s beginning in 1903 Ford Motors has always strived to make cars affordable and easy to buy for everybody. Ford has a long history of having good cars at a great price and offers more classes of models so that everybody can have the car of their dreams.
Ford Motors first car was the Model A, which started production at a rented plant in Michigan. After a few months of existence Ford Motors was already making a profit on their Model A car. Automobiles in America were becoming a new trend and Ford Motors knew that automobiles weren’t going anywhere. They had introduced America to a new kind of market. In 1906 Ford Motors merged with Oldsmobile, Buick and Cadillac to become Americas #1 automobile maker. With this merger Henry Ford became company president and majority owner because he was having clashes with other stockholders about his plan of producing affordable cars for a mass market.
In 1908 Ford Motors introduced the Model T and their first international sales branch was founded in France. In 1911 the first assemble plant outside the United States was founded in Great Britain.
