It was the first mass produced car. Although credit for the development of the assembly line belongs to Ransom E. Olds, with the first mass-produced automobile, the Oldsmobile Curved Dash, having begun in 1901, the tremendous advances in the efficiency of the system over the life of the Model T can be credited almost entirely to Ford and his engineers

Henry Ford said of the vehicle:

It was produced from October 1, 1908, to May 26, 1927 by the Ford Motor Company.
