Henry Ford had an engine running by 1893 but it was 1896 before he built his first car. By the end of the year Ford had sold his first car, which he called a Quadracycle, for 200 and used the money to build another one.
"Henry Ford posing with his first car (the 1896 quadricycle) and the 10 millionth Model T Ford. This photograph was taken during the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the Ford Motor Company." On September 27, 1908, the first Model T automobile was produced. This engineering achievement was due to the vision, ingenuity and risk-taking of Henry Ford. His innovation of assembly line production would make the automobile affordable to the average person.
Built in a shed behind the house in 1896, "The Quqdricycle" is the first car built by Henry Ford
Hemp is amazing for footwear and clothing but it also has other uses. Henry Fords first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the car itself was constructed from hemp! On his large estate Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car grown from the soil had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel.
