The Ford Model F is an automobile produced by the Ford Motor Company. It was a development of the Model A and Model C, but was larger, more modern, and more luxurious. It was a four-seater phaeton with running boards and a side-entrance tonneau standard. Production started in 1905 and ended in 1906 after about 1000 were made. In 1905, it was priced at $2,000 (equivalent to $49000 today); by contrast, the Colt Runabout was US$1500,[6] the FAL was US$1750,[7] the Cole 30 US$1500,[7] the Enger 40 US$2000,[7] and the Lozier Light Six Metropolian US$3,250.[8] All had green bodies[9].
