"Up From Clay" - car creation 1959

Recommended Posts

Apropos of our recent "Plane Trains Automobiles" contest, here is a great industrial film made by GM in 1959 to give a sense of the process by which a new car is brought from the drawing board to the production line.

Full-size clay model at 3:10

The drawing room at 5:25 ! All splines made with "french curves"

I particularly like the robotic butt machine that tests the upholstery at 8:20

I cringed at 25:20 as guys are spray painting laquer colors onto the cars... no masks... probably every one of those guys died of lung cancer!

Not to worry, I'm sure the cigarettes got them first.
