Full-size Ford
FULL-SIZE FORD is the popular term for a long-running line of Ford vehicles which have been produced in North America
North America
with a large degree of similarity since the Model T in 1908, up to the Crown Victoria , which ceased production in late 2011.

The Model T's 134-inch overall length makes it substantially shorter than a current-generation Fiesta hatchback (160.1" OAL). American automobiles in the early years were usually only identified by make and year (such as a 1952 Ford
