* Notes about these prices:
- They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify PSG if you come across values that do not make sense.
- They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
- They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.
The Ford Motor Company called the "working man's car", the Model T, "The Universal Car", since millions were manufactured in the U.S., Canada and around the world. In 1904 Ford signed an agreement with the Walkerville Wagon Company to establish a branch factory in Canada. At the outset of the agreement the Canadian firm was given the sole rights in the British Empire, a market protected by tariffs. With this special access to overseas markets, Canada became the second largest automobile producer in the world from 1918 to 1923. The Model T was introduced in 1909 and continued in production until 1927. During that period over 75,000 were made in Canada. Refinement of assembly line techniques dropped the price to a very affordable $450. Beginning in 1914 engines were also built in Canada, greatly increasing the Canadian content. And Canadian Model T were available in blue, distinguishing themselves from their black-only American counterparts.
