But this is not necessarily true. “Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black,” said Henry Ford, commenting on the colour options for the Model-T. By offering the Model-T only in black, the car was less expensive to produce. Ford had to find only one supplier for good black paint and buy it in large quantities at better prices. Costs were reduced and any painting problems were dealt with efficiently. Ford knew that simplifying can increase productivity and increase sales, while lowering costs.
