Early 70's Ford Production
#1
Neat video that shows early 70's production at ford. Near the end you see some mustangs in the lot and loaded on rail fro shipment.

That was a cool video. I wonder if the poor guy had to walk all the way back and get another car?Smile

Almost the whole video is 1972 cars being built on the assembly line. Then it shows a same color 73 LTD being driven on the railroad car. Great video!

Excellent video. I wish we could get more pics and videos of the production process.
I'd bet the UAW union (United Auto Workers) might have a bunch! Anyone have any connections there? Sure might be worth a look.

We got some really good pics posted on some earlier threads. If the following links don't work just use the search box at the upper right of each page and search for "assembly line" without the quotes.
We got some great reponses from an earlier (similar) thread:

man those must have been the good ole days of when globalization was unheard of and people actually went to jobs. I really enjoy that video for the simple fact that it showed something not often seen these days. work ethic , notice how professional and how attentive they are to the various jobs they had on the line regardless of how small it may be. plus any 70s ford media is just cool

OLE Pony posted this earlier about an interview with a 70's production line employee.

http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-audio...-in-1972-3

If the link doesn't work search this 71-3 site for "Ford interview"

Interesting for sure.

no Robots used for the Weilding, and No masks in the Painting rooms..
I was talking to one of my uncles, he worked in the Lorain Ohio ford plant from the eirly 70's - the 90's then in the Louisville Ky plant in the 90's through the eirly 2Ks.
some of the stories I have heard from him are funny and cool, like when the smokers on the line would drop cigarette butts in the cars, under the carpets, leave snake wrappers ECT...
