The 1908 Model S Runabout was one of seven different body styles offered by Ford over their K, N, R and S model lines. This variety would change in 1908 wîth the introduction of the new T as Ford's only model line. Most people don't known that there was a succession of different models until Henry Ford began production of the automobile for which he is most famous - the Model T.
