    Despite its now-iconic status, the name "Model T" was nothing more than a sequential designation. When Henry Ford founded Ford Motors in 1903 his first car was simply called the Model A, for the first letter of the alphabet. As new models were developed they were assigned the next letter, regardless of whether they were prototypes or actual production vehicles. By 1908 the list reached "T".

    Economies of scale, savings on retooling and retraining, and other incentives kept the

    Model "T" in production (with little change) for 19 years. By the time it ready for a 

    "flat head V-8", Plymouth was marketing a Model U.

    A, B, C, AC,F, K, N, R, and S came before the model T although none sold in great numbers. The model A was used again after the T .

    Nope. They went back to the BEGINNING...with a revamped MODEL A...then B...then V8...then the MODEL names petered out. They went with Years and Names/Numbers of cars.
