Henry Ford started his motoring company in June 1903 - his first base of operations was converted from a disused old factory in Detroit Michigan. His first car was the Model T Ford, which he finished in 1930. The car had the first engine containing a cylinder head that could be removed and worked on. This was a huge improvement on the first car made by the German inventor Carl Benz in 1886. Today, Ford is the second largest car manufacturer based in the United States of America, and it is the fifth largest in the world. It has been reported that Ford produce more than 5 million automobiles every year, and they employ more than 200,000 people at 90 different stations and factories worldwide.
Today Ford are one of the more popular manufacturers of cars, vans and tractors. There are several Ford branded cars on the market, all of which have younger and older models that can be picked up online in various conditions depending on the seller. The Ford Fiesta has been made by Ford since 1976, and more than 16 million of them have been sold since their first release. The Ford Escort was produced from the years 1978 to 2002, but second hand Escorts can be found. The Ford Mustang is on the higher performance end, and is a muscle car that was first built in 1964. All of these cars have had face lifts and have been iterated on over the years, with the Fiesta reaching its fifth generation.
