Accordingly, how much did a car cost in 1925?
Assembly-line production allowed the price of the touring car version to be lowered from $850 in 1908 to less than $300 in 1925. At such prices the Model T at times comprised as much as 40 percent of all cars sold in the United States.
Subsequently, question is, how much did a car cost in 1900?
In 1900 a car, then hand-made, cost over $1,000. Henry Ford's original Model-T, introduced in 1908, cost $850, but by 1924 only $265: he was using an assembly line, and, in virtuous circle, was also selling far more cars. Over the century, the real price of a car fell by 50%.
