The slat line before going onto the carriers. This is the second floor of factory #04. This is just after the pit that I would work in during 1975. This view is facing south.
Front bumper installation. The photo of my old boss Bob Swales doing this job in 1968 is shown in a previous post. These carriers brought the car down from the second floor.
Final or slat line. This is the north end of factory #04. This view is facing south east.

  1. These are great photos- I was just a little guy but remember the '69 models very well.I'm surprised to see full sized and mid sized models on the line together- what year did 04 and 40 split final assembly?
