Model T Ford trademark
a type of Ford car made between 1909 and 1927. It was the first car to be built on an assembly line, and this made inexpensive cars available to ordinary people for the first time. The Model T Ford was sold in very large numbers, and was informally called the 'Tin Lizzie'. Henry Ford, who invented and produced this car, was speaking about the Model T when he said the famous phrase: "You can have any colour you like, so long as it's black."
