the first car produced on an assembly line (= a line of workers who build something as it moves along on a large belt) and sold at a price that ordinary people could afford. Its popular name was the 'Tin Lizzie' and it was made by the Ford Motor Company between 1908 and 1927. There is a joke that Henry Ford told customers they could have the car in any colour as long as it was black. About 15 million Model Ts were produced before it was replaced by the Model A.
