Ford Model T was an automobile produced by Henry Ford’s Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927. The model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile came into popular usage. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Ford Model T, designer David Beasley has created a possible reinterpretation of the legendary car, featuring a design inspired by modern architecture and proposed in different body variants.

David explains, "2008 bears a special date for Ford - the 100th birthday of the Model T. For this reason, I believe that the perfect time to replace the Ka or Fiesta and give the customer an affordable ’halo’ product is next year."

"I have designed this around contemporary architecture and graphic influences with the intention of creating a fresh yet heritage inspired design."

The proposal by David includes a 2+2 ’dickie’ coupe, a 2-seater pick-up and a more versatile and practical 4-seater wagon. They all could be offered in combination "with the accompanying emotional lifestyle products to inspire the end user."

This is an interesting idea. The perfect homage to pay to the Model T would be to offer its successor at a price that everybody earning a decent wage could afford to buy and own from new. A price of say...oh...I dunno...US$3000...But oh well, Jerry Flint says that can’t happen so I guess we’re stuck with the Focus.
