The saying goes something like this: ‘Any customer can have a Model T painted any color that he wants as long as it’s black.’ And ironically, the automaker decided that in the first years of production (1908 – 1913) color black wouldn’t be available for the Model T. You could have chosen from blue, red, green and grey. But not black. Grey was exclusive for the town cars and red only for the touring versions. Green was used for the town cars, touring cars, coupes, and Landaulets. By 1912, all models were in midnight blue color combined with black fenders. But in 1914 the “any color as long as it is black” plan was finally enforced.
