1926 Ford Model T coupe©

Build the car, but paint it black!!! As I understand it that was the deal until the model year 1926 and Henry was forced to change his mind as sales were down 17% from 1925. Hence intorduction of Fawn Gray, Highland Green, and Royal Maroon. Rumors were flying that Ford was about to come out with an entirely new car, so that sure didn’t help sales! People were making more money and were going for more upscale automobiles, so a change was needed badly and that happened with the introduction of the 1928 models.
