What a difference when you compare it to the modern day assembly line.

Love it! I was amazed at all of the automation even back then. BTW, I think something similar is why the VA is paying for my Dad's hearing aids. He was in USAF aircraft engine maintenance and munitions (about equal time each) from '57 to '80. Safety standards weren't the same when he first went in, so I am sure much of his hearing was sacrificed for the cause.

I was surprised to see the spot welders...don't know why. When you compare them to the robotic lines which weld up the entire body at one station it looks pretty primitive. For some reason also I thought that the metal forming was done off site, but there they are forming fenders and roofs and trimming the excess as they fit the pieces.

That's a cool video. When I was a little kid my Dad owned a '36 Buick that was similar to those cars. I remember the cord across the back seat. We used to hold on to it and stand up while he was driving!
