1937 Ford - One Top-Notch Tail Dragger

1937 Ford - One Top-Notch Tail Dragger

Henry Ford wasn't one who embraced change. His Model T changed little from 1908 until 1928, when it was replaced with the Model A. But with over 15 million Model T's sold, Henry's philosophy of keeping things simple apparently worked, or at least it did during the early years. However, times were changing, and although Ford's much improved Model A was a good seller, Chevrolet, with its overhead valve engine and modern styling, outsold Ford by 150,000 vehicles in 1928. The failure to overtake Chevrolet in sales finally convinced Henry that styling, comfort and performance were now what the public wanted.
