How it all started
Summary of his life
Henry Ford, an excellent mechanic and great machinist, invented the first assembly line which changed the mass production of cars and other products. He made it so the automobile wasn't just for the rich and wasn't just a toy. The Model T was the first affordable car for the middle class which was made in 1908. By 1916 he sold 720,000 Model T’s. The assembly line made it so we could mass produce products in a more productive way. This is still used worldwide. He also invented the first time clock for workers. Ford started a Foundation in 1936 which has donated $8 billion in grants worldwide. Ford Motors still is a worldwide company.
