Let’s Celebrate Henry Ford’s Birthday

On July 30th, 1863, Henry Ford arrived in the world. The son of immigrants - his father was from Country Cork, Ireland; his mother was of Belgian heritage - he gained an early appreciation of hard work and hard times. His early days were spent toiling on the family farm... until a gift in the form of a pocket watch changed everything.

At fifteen Ford became fascinated with the mechanics of timepieces, cobbling together cogs, gears and jewels. He learned how to manipulate (and fix) the designs, and this sparked a love of machinery that would later expand into engine territory.

Yesterday was Henry Ford’s birthday - and his company delivered a fitting tribute. Watch it below!

Henry Ford wasn’t the creator of the automobile. He was, however, the creator of accessibility - helping drivers discover high speeds and affordable prices. His contribution to the engineering world remains unmatched.

A very happy birthday, Mr. Ford! We salute you!
