FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Announcing the 2019 Model T Ford Winter Tour
The Model T Ford Winter Tour is headquartered at the Renaissance World Golf Village, St Augustine, Florida and will be touring in the area from February 24 thru February 28. We welcome the public to view the automobiles during our tour. Suggested viewing locations are listed below.
The Model T Ford began production in late 1908 and ended in late 1927. It is recognized as the first mass (assembly line) produced automobile. Over 15,000,000 were produced world wide. It held the distinction for highest production vehicle for many years, until the Volkswagen Beetle eventually surpassed this record. Amazingly, the sale price continued to be REDUCED as the production increased, beginning over $600 per car and ending at less than $300 dollars per car.
There are approximately 130 Model T Fords registered for this year's tour, coming from 28 states, Canada and Ireland for this event.
Public viewing opportunities (all times are approximate). Certainly take photos, however please refrain from touching!
