The Ford Model B is an upscale touring car (with polished wood and brass trim) that was introduced in 1904 by Ford. It was built at the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant. It was Ford's first car to use the front-engine layout, with a large 24 hp 4-cylinder engine positioned at the front behind a conventional radiator. The smaller Model A-derived Model C positioned its flat 2-cylinder motor under the seat.

Priced at $2000 (equivalent to $54000 today), the Model B was a high end car. Produced for three years, sales were predictably slower than the Model C which was priced at 1/3 the cost. The Model B was replaced by the derivative Model K in 1906.
