Vintage assembly plant videos
« on: August 26, 2009, 07:33:28 AM »
I just found these videos on Youtube. The first set is Fisher. The second set is Pontiac, but the same basic timeframe and process. Some great footage!!
Nice overview of the process. I've never seen the interior trim parts being made. Great footage of the paint spraying.

1970 Fisher (one of four):

That Youtube guy also has a bunch of interesting Chevy commercials...

Very cool!  I didn't realize Fisher was designing/developing/testing airbags back in 1970.

Air bags were actually available on Oldsmobile Toronado in the 1970s. They just were not received well by the public. Sort of like seat belts in the 1950s.
