Ford font

Does anyone know what font the word Ford is written in? In the badges, i mean.

Is it even a font or is it just some caligraphy thats been copied for years?

I don't think that's a joke. If I remember correctly the Ford Model T had the same FORD insignia (without the oval) on the front of the top of the radiator.

Well I believe the font was created by somebody hired by Henry Ford, not made up by Ford himself.

The font does/did exist, going from memory, it was taken from an old font set found hanging around by Henry Fords assistant (an accountant I think). I have an article on it somewhere, will try to dig it up tonight.

Yes that sounds right, I can't find my article on the corporate badging history so if you find it I would appreciate you posting it up.
