The Ford Model ‘N’ was first produced in 1906 as a lightweight two seat Runabout with a powerful (15hp) four cylinder engine driving the rear wheels through a two speed and reverse epicyclic transmission. It sold for $500 which was considered cheap at the time.

Most light cars of the period were powered by either single or twin cylinder engines. The performance of the Ford ensured its immediate success

The car was quite basic with items such as headlamps, hood etc coming as extras! Mudguards were simple flat steel curved to suit the wheels and no running boards were fitted, just a simple step. All the cars were right hand drive, left hand drive did not appear until the Model T Ford was produced in 1908.
