True or False?


Recommended Posts

I heard a few facts in a museum tour recently, and wonder if they are actual facts:

1) In making the Model T, Ford purchased exclusive rights to use vanadium steel in the U.S., and no other car maker could use this alloy for 16 years.

2) The Ford T was able to use a removable cylinder head because their engines were cast from vanadium steel.

3) The Sears motor buggy was sold as a kit and require assembly by the purchaser.
