Over the 19 years it was produced, the Model T Fordwas practically unchanged in design and appearance, and a total of 15million cars were sold.
Although Volkswagen plays down the connection , the company got its start during the Third Reich. Based on the Fuerher's desire to rebuild Germany into a rich nation where all families could own a car, the company turned out several very recognizable Volkswagen beetles.
Soon, though, World War II forced the factory to start producing war material instead--including lightweight, dependable cars (Kubelwagens)
used for transport in North Africa and along the Russian Front.
