In October 1908, a Ford Model T designed by József Galamb and companions, rolled out of the assembly line and achieved for the company a worldwide success it still enjoys today. The car’s ease of use and reliable construction, as well as its affordable price, won the favour of buyers so much that the model was produced until 1927. The increasingly successful Hungarian chief designer of the Ford Motor Company, József Galamb never forgot his homeland. When he returned home, he supported his brothers in building up and running a Ford site and assembly plant in Makó, and established scholarships, gave lectures to members of the professional community, and supported the Reformed Church in Makó.
