At that time, the automobile industry was still in an experimental phase, yet Mr Fords groundbreaking design lasted without major change for nearly two decades. More than 15 million Model Ts were built: performance and price gave the car an edge.In this book, published to celebrate the centenary of the Model T, John Duncan explains why it was such a phenomenon. The reasons for the cars success can be found in its brilliant mechanical design.

The aim of this book is to provide a fresh and concise look at the design, and to show how Henry Fords personality is reflected in the car he created.Any Color – So Long As Its Black is simply written and will appeal to anyone who would like to understand what is so remarkable about the Model T and why it is a landmark in engineering history.John Duncan was born and educated in Australia, and has had a distinguished career as an engineer in industry and later in tertiary education.

After practical training in manufacturing in USA and Australia, he pursued postgraduate work in the UK and was appointed a professor of mechanical engineering in Canada and subsequently in New Zealand. Since retirement, his life has been divided between a small farm near Auckland and research in automotive manufacturing at the University of Michigan, USA, and Deakin University, Australia.

He has restored a number of historic vehicles and owns a 1918 Model T tourer built by his grandfathers company, Duncan & Fraser Ltd., which assembled and built bodies for Model T Fords in Adelaide from 1909 to 1927.
