The Ford Motor Co.
In 1923 the Model T Touring Cars and Roadsters were again restyled. Ford used the same bodies as in 1921 and 1922 Ford versions. 1923 Ford Model T’s had new windshields with a sloping angle and a new “One Man” top. These features made the open body styles to look new.
Production of the 1923 Ford models started in the fall of 1922 and continued until June 1923 when the 1924 Ford Model T’s were introduced.
The prediction for Ford’s output for 1923 was 1, 500, 000. However over 2.2 million were produced. Closed car amounted to 30% of Ford’s production when other manufacturers reached 50%. By 1924 more closed American Automobiles than open cars were made in the United States.
