1907 Ford Model K
Our 1907 Model K is the only one of its kind in New Zealand, and is one of just 20 believed to be left in the entire world.
- The Ford Model K was designed to be a more upscale version of the Model B, and was geared to a higher-end market
- Being aimed at a niche might account for its reputation as a "sales disaster"
- Despite its reputation, the Ford Model K accounted for more than 85 percent of the company's new car profit in 1906
- The Ford Motor Company decided to switch its efforts to the middle market: and in turn focused on the mid-priced and accessible Model T
- There were not many Model Ks made, and there's even fewer of them left: which makes seeing our mint-condition one up close a special experience. If you’re a bit of a magpie attracted to the finer things in life, come on into Bill Richardson Transport World and see it for yourself.
