Content Description: 

This 1919 Model T closed-body Sedan represents a significant change in the way Ford produced and marketed the best-selling car. By 1919, Ford Motor Company was producing Model Ts in record numbers and facing stiffer competition by mid and lower-priced makers such as Chevrolet and Dodge Brothers. These competitors met consumer's growing demands for "more car" at a reasonable price and offered greater comfort and convenience at prices only slightly more than the Model T. An option such as the electric starter, which made starting a car a simple process compared to the potentially dangerous hand crank on the Model T, was standard on many of Ford's competitors. In addition, Ford asked consumers to pay extra for demountable rims making changing flat tires a quick and relatively easy operation. These costly options put the venerable Model T at a disadvantage in an increasingly competitive automobile market.
