About This Quiz

Henry Ford was an experienced car builder by the time he started the Ford Motor Company at the turn of the 20th Century. 

Having built his first car in 1896, Ford quickly took his company to the top of the pile, thanks to his love of innovation. Not only did he help institute much of the processes in car manufacturing as we know them today, but he also looked after his workers, often paying them two times the minimum wage. He also ensured they worked no more than eight-hour days, and through that built a loyal workforce.

But it was a legendary Ford model that became a legend and a car of the people. It put Ford at the forefront of motoring in America and soon after, the rest of the world.

During World War II, Ford turned his factories into beacons in aid of the Allied war effort, building aircraft, engines, and vehicles for Allied forces right around the world.

At the turn of this century, when the Chevy and Chrysler needed bailouts from the government, Ford didn't.
