Production Years for Each Model T

 
 

 

The figures below are PRODUCTION numbers. There are several sources of production figures and they do not always agree. The following figures are derived from the source noted above. In general, the figures between 1909 and 1920 are for Ford's FISCAL YEAR which varied in the early years. 1909 fiscal year was from October 1, 1908 to September 30, 1909, and this pattern continued until the end of the 1913 fiscal year, September 30, 1913. Beginning in October 1913 (1914 fiscal year) the fiscal year was October 1 through July 31, 1914. Starting in August 1914, and through the end of the Model T era, the fiscal year was August 1 through July 31. Beginning with January 1920 the figures are for the CALENDAR YEAR.

To add to the confusion, Ford's sales data shows body types which were not included in the production data. These may have been included in one of the other body types, or they just may have been overlooked. In any event, these are the figures we have. Take them “with a grain of salt.” This data includes all  foreign production EXCEPT Canada.
