History of the brand
Ford was founded in 1903 with $28,000 contributed by up to a total of twelve investors, including the mythical Henry Ford. This would be done with a total of 25.5% of the shares, assuming the positions of vice-president and chief engineer. In the beginning the company produced a few cars a day in its modest factory. 1908 marked a before and after in Ford. By then Henry Ford was president and owner of the brand. That year was built the first Ford T, the first car produced in series and with a fairly low price. Its success was such that the company had to relocate soon after in order to meet the production demand of the model.
