Henry Ford

Henry was very curious, because he liked to learn how machines worked. He was also persistent, because even though he failed many times, he would not give up. Even though Henry did not have a very good education, he was smart and built the Ford vehicle. Ford was strong, because he built his first car, (quadricycle) from scratch and nearly by hand.

* The first car Henry made was called a quadricycle.* His next car was a race car and was called the 999.* Henry was the first person to use mass production and the assembly line.* Brought the world the Model T and the Model A.* Made war vehicles for WW2.

Henry was born in a farm family, so he faced many hard challenges on the farm. Ford disliked farming, so he was happy when he got to go to school. Even though he went to school, he did not have a good education. Henry showed an early interest in moving parts, such as gears. He had his wind-up toys taken away from him, because he would always take them apart. Henry was about ten when he and some of his friends built a small mill.
