Birthday Celebration on Tap for Ford’s Model T in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — A birthday celebration is taking place for Ford’s Model T in Detroit.

Sunday’s free event is in the courtyard of the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant museum and includes Model T rides, cupcakes and Faygo pop.

The three-story brick factory was where the first of auto industry pioneer Henry Ford’s Model Ts were built and was the automaker’s home from 1904 to 1910. About 12,000 Model Ts were built there between 1908 and 1910, when production was shifted elsewhere.

The Model T became the symbol of low-cost, reliable transportation. Before production ended in 1927, Ford Motor Co. sold more than 15 million Model Ts.
