More About Ford.

Ford Australia

Henry Ford founded the eponymous Henry Ford Company in Detroit, Michigan, in November of 1901, with the then princely sum of $28000 from investors, including John and Horace Dodge.  Ford left the company just months later and in 1903 founded what would become the giant we now know simply as Ford.

The company produced a line of simply named vehicles, including the Model T from 1908. March of 1925 saw the announcement of Geelong as the home of Ford Australia. It was the Model T that would mark the beginning of production for the Australian arm, built in a disused wool storage building in Geelong, with the building of a factory commencing in the suburb of Norlane at around the same time.

1934 marked the release the “coupe utility”, designed by Louis Brandt, and reached prominence by banks lending funds for working vehicles at the tail end of the Great Depression.

Ford moved to Campbellfield and announced in 1961 that the location would become their new headquarters.

The manufacturing covered CKD (Completely Knocked Down ) vehicles, assembled from pre-manufactured parts, plus built versions of cars from overseas adapted for local conditions, such as the Cortina, Escort and Falcon. However local development saw the famous nameplate better suited to Aussie roads from the mid 1960s. Ford also stood high in local motorsport and perhaps is best known for the Ford Falcon XY Phase 3 GT-HO of 1971. Available at the time, for not much more than $4000.
