Description: 1906 Model N Ford
The Ford Model N was produced by Ford Motor Company. It was introduced in 1906 as a successor to the Models A and C as the company's inexpensive entry-level line. It was built at the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.

The Model N diverged from its predecessors in that it was a front-engine car with a 4-cylinder inline engine. The 15 hp straight-4 drove the rear wheels via a long shaft. This was also the first American car to use vanadium steel. The car had a wheelbase of 84 in.

A successful model, 7000 cars were made before production ended in 1908. At US$500, the car was viewed as highly affordable at the time; by contrast, the high-volume Oldsmobile Runabout went for $650, Western's Gale Model A was $500, the Brush Runabout $485, the Black $375, and the Success for $250. Maroon was the only factory color for the Model N.
