The Model A, introduced in 1928, was the successor to the wildly successful Model T.  A far more sophisticated automobile, the Model comprised 6800 different parts as opposed to the under 5000 for the last Model T.  It also put out double the hp--40 hp as opposed to only 20 hp for the Model T.

While the Model A was well-received, it did not allow Ford to reclaim the sales lead it lost to Chevrolet in 1927.  For 1928, Ford sold 633,594 cars, while Chevrolet, much vaunted as a reliable automobile and great value, sold an impressive 1,193,212 cars.
