Henry Ford's Experiments with Auto Design

  • Aired: 01/29/2013

  • Rating: NR

Ford thought nothing of joining his workers on the factory floor to experiment with new engine ignition designs or suspension systems. Every few months, Ford released another automobile in his alphabet line, each improving upon the last.
