Henry Ford ‘Clones’ Show Off Oldest Surviving Model A During Auto Show

At the North American International Auto Show you never know who you’re going to run into.

We met quite a gentleman in Ford country — Henry Ford himself to be exact. Actually five Henry Fords materialized in the exhibit — each representing the engineering genius at different points in his life.

The actors described the features of the historic vehicle. The 1903 Model a could achieve “8 horse-power and up to 30 miles per hour on a smooth road,” said one of the “Fords.”

The car was recently purchased by a Ford family member and is part of the company’s Auto Show exhibit.
