The 999 was named after a New York Central Railway train that set records in 1893. On October 25, 1902, Barney Oldfield drove the 999 wide open and defeated Alexander Winton, W.C. Bucknam and Charles Shanks at the Grosse Pointe racetrack in Michigan. The spectators went wild at his time of 5 minutes, 28 seconds - an American record.

The car was constructed in 1902 and was designed by Henry Ford. It is powered by an inline, 4-cylinder, 18.8-liter (1155.3 cubic-inch) engine developing approximately 70-horsepower. It cost $5,000, a considerable sum in 1902.

This is actually an exact replica of the original 999. The Ford Motor Company commissioned it for the 1966 World's Fair. The original is on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI, and this replica is kept at the Motorsports Hall of Fame at America Museum in Novi, MI.
