Ford introduced the Model T in 1909 and produced millions at prices ($450 in 1913) that suited the working man's budget.

The Speedster was one of many customs offered in 1913 by independent manufacturers, giving the owner a less expensive option to the very popular (and expensive) Stutz Bearcat and Mercer Raceabout. The stock body was replaced with a sharp looking "Speedster body" complete with a monocle windshield, and the heavy wooden wheels were replaced with strong and lightweight wire wheels. A complete kit of radiator, hood, floorboards, rear gasoline tank, and body could be purchased for around $100. Speedster body wasn't just for looks, it made the Model T go faster by making it lighter.

The Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964 and created a new market segment which was called the 'Pony Car.' For 1966, only minor styling changes were made, as the Mustang was still enjoying strong sales. For 1967, Ford reluctantly opted to re-style its class-leading Mustang for the 1967 model year as they were faced with increasing competition from other marques, including the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Charger. The 1967 Mustang became more visually imposing than its predecessor with its jutting grille, widened sheetmetal, and concave rear panel. With more engine bay space, the Mustang was now able to accommodate larger engines. Thus, the 1967 Mustang was the first to be fitted with a 'big block' V8, the 390 'S' code. The hardtop coupe body styles was the most popular, with 356,271 examples sold.

The Ford Thunderbird is an American automotive icon first introduced in 1955. For the 1970 model year, the Thunderbird was stylistically updated with the addition of a large, bird's beak-style projection out of its grille. Offered in coupe or sports-back models, all 1970-1971 Thunderbirds had prominent angular lines on the hood leading to a jutting tip, that also formed the center of the grill work, that was not a too thinly disguised bird beak. Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen, a former GM executive now President of Ford, is said to be responsible for this dramatic change. As with the 1967-69 models, the 1970-71 models had sequential turn signals incorporated into the full panel tail lights at the rear of the car.

The Ford Ranchero is a pickup/coupe utility that was produced by Ford between 1957 and 1979. Unlike a standard pickup truck, the Ranchero was adapted from a two-door station wagon platform that integrated the cab and cargo bed into the body. In 1972, a radical change occurred in the Torino and Ranchero lines. The sleek, pointy look of the previous year's model was replaced with a larger, heavier design. Most prominent was a wide semioval grille reminiscent of a jet intake and a new body-on-frame design. Three models were still available; the now-standard 500, the new Squire with simulated woodgrain "paneling" along the flanks, and the sporty GT.
