How Many Ford Model Ts Are Still in Existence?

An exact number is not available, but automotive industry experts estimate that approximately 30,000 of the original 15 million Ford Model T automobiles still exist. Ford introduced the Model T on Oct. 1, 1908 and ceased regular production on May 25, 1927.

In 1908, the first year of production, Ford made only 308 Model Ts. The first "Tin Lizzies," as they were known, sold for $850, but later the priced dropped to as low as $260, due to production efficiencies and manufacturing innovations.

The Model T was the first mass-produced automobile with interchangeable parts. By the mid-1920s, half the cars in the world were identical Model Ts.
