Ford Pick up 1937

The V8 engine invented by Henry Ford, was placed into the Pick Up truck in 1937. Many consumers felt that it was not economical and the horsepower went down from 80 to 60.

This car had its engine placed next to the driver instead of behind. The headlights were put near the fender with the badge near the hood of the car. It had a fuller grill and a vee'd windshield.

Ford Classics

Henry Ford built the first car in 1908 called the T model and it sold for $950. In it's nineteen years of production the price dropped to $280 and almost 15,500,000 were sold in the United States.

This was his first commercial vehicle but he had started making other cars Model A and C in 1903, which is when he founded his company and the Model A was the firm's car.

The Model T evolved from being a luxury item to an essential piece of transportation.

Henry used innovative production techniques, which could turn out a chassis every 93 minutes.

In 1914 the car was mass produced and manufactured every 23 minutes, turning Henry Ford into an international celebrity.

In 1932 he introduced the V8 engine.

Ford Mustang 1960's

This model was inspired by the Ford Falcon which was a compact vehicle.

The 1965 Ford Mustang was the most successful launch after model A. It has been through several transformations and from what it was up to what it is now, has changed drastically.

It was considered a pony or muscle car as it has 2 doors and came in hatchback, coupe, fastback and convertible.

John Ferzely, the stylist was infatuated with the mustang fighter plane in WW2 and created the design of the motorcar from that.

The mustang was first shown off at the Grand Prix and proved to be as fast as the formula 1 cars racing.

The mustang name was not allowed to be used in Gemany, as thwy had a trucking company by that name and ford mustangs sold in Germany in 1960s were sold as T5's.

Ford Mustang 2015

The thrill of driving the Mustang is one that you cannot explain. The steering wheel is set to your comfort levels and you can choose between the V6 or V8 engine.

There is a fully independent rear suspension that makes it feel like you are driving on glass.

With a twin scroll turbo charger you can torque faster.

It has an advanced communication system as well as sensors to detect cars in the blind spot.

You can unlock the car and start it as long as you have the keys on you.

There is a centre touch screen that is voice activated.

Eco boost engine and the choice of colours and styles.

The difference between the then and now mustang is the speed and my favourite; doors that open upwards!

Ford F-150 Pick up Truck

Times have changed since the first Ford pick up and this year you can get the new F- 150, made with military grade aluminum alloy and high strength steel in its body and bed.

It weighs 700lbs and is lighter than the pick ups in the past. Being lighter makes it much more effective.

The F - 150 has been made to stand the worst of terrains, haul heavy duty trailers and withstand heat or cold.

The supercab can seat a maximum of 6 people and the regular can seat 3.

There is a choice between 4x2 or 4x4 wheel drive.

The interior has the same luxury as any Ford and the "cockpit" is just as much fun as the sedan.

The f - 150 is the most popular vehicle in the United States for 2014.

The Ford focus is economical, fuel efficient and with the suspension, it is a smooth drive all the way.

The F -150 is a great truck for those who need to haul heavy things, like trailers and equipment. It can withstand the temperatures and it is a strong off road vehicle.

The Fiesta is great because it looks good and it is compact and easy to drive, especially in crowded and busy traffic countries.

Ford Focus Electric Car

Ford has always kept up with the times and seeing as how they invented the first car, here is a car that will help save the planet.

It is powered exclusively by a battery and can reach 84mph.

The high voltage lithium - ion battery has an advanced liquid heating and cooling system to regulate the temperature, maximising the battery life.

The interior of this car is made up of 100 % recycled materials.

Technologically sound as it monitors the battery life, you have a battery charging station at home and a map system to give you the most economical route to follow to your destination.

For some there might even be a tax rebate for buying this car to protect the environment.

Ford Focus electric has a key that you do not need to put into the ignition. Space in the rear is not taken away by the battery and there is room for cargo.
