Company history

Ford founded the Ford Motor Company Italia in Trieste in 1923 to assemble automobiles.[1] The company moved to Bologna in 1933.[1] After the Second World War, the company was renamed Ford Italiana SA. [1] In 1959, moved to Rome.[1] By 1964, their only independent model was the Ford Anglia Torino. Production ended in 1967.[2] The company still exists today as Ford Italia S.p.A.

First, the models Ford Model T and Ford Model TT[1] and Fordson Tractor were produced. The Ford Anglia Torino was introduced on the basis of the Ford Anglia 105E in 1964.[2] Giovanni Michelotti had revised the bodywork and in particular replaced the rear-sloping rear window.[2] Production took place at OSI.[2] Production of the model ended in 1967.[2] A total of 10,000 copies were sold in Italy.[2]
