THE HENRY FORD STORY





 

Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company, was born in Springwells Township, Wayne Country, Michigan, on July 30, 1863, the eldest of six children in a family of four boys and two girls.

From the age of 12, Henry Ford had spent most of his spare time in a small machine shop which he had equipped himself. There at 15, he constructed his first steam engine.

Henry Ford's career as a builder of automobiles started in the winter of 1893, when his interest in internal combustion engines led him to construct a small one-cylinder gasoline model. This first Ford engine spluttered its way into history on a wooden table in the kitchen of the Ford home in Detroit. From that he designed an engine which, mounted on a frame fitted with four bicycle wheels, became the first Ford car, completed in June 1896. On June 16, 1903, he helped set up Ford Motor Company.

The first car built by the company was sold on July 23 1903. Henry Ford owned 25.5 per cent of the stock in the new organisation. He became president and controlling owner in 1906. Then in 1919, Henry Ford and his son, Edsel, acquired the interest of all minority stockholders for $105,568,858 thus becoming sole owners of the company. The most famous cars built under Henry Ford's leadership were the Model T, of which over 16 million were built between 1908 and 1927. In September 1945, Henry Ford resigned the presidency of the Ford Motor Company and was succeeded by his grandson, Henry Ford II. Henry Ford died at his home, Fair Lane, in Dearborn on Monday, April 7 1947 at 11.40pm, following a cerebral haemorrhage. He was 83.
