The Ford Romania plant in Bucharest, which operated between 1936 and 1940. The plant was designed in a modernist style and was built in collaboration with the American architect Albert Kahn. The main car produced at the plant was the Ford V8 Fordor Sedan model, and starting in 1938 the V8-81A De Luxe and V8-82A Standard models were also assembled.

At the beginning, the factory had only 5 employees, but in 1940 their number reached 380. The production capacity of the factory was 10 cars per day, but it could be increased to 30 cars per day by working in three shifts.

In 1938, Revista Ford, a specialized publication dedicated to Ford cars, began to be published in Bucharest. A special issue of Romanian Illustration was dedicated to the future King Mihai, who was a car enthusiast. Every Thursday morning, he would come to the factory and work with his colleagues on assembling a Ford car.

The Ford Romania plant was an important economic and cultural institution for interwar Romania. She contributed to the development of the car industry in the country and promoted car culture.
