So you are to blame  :bricks1: , LOL. Found it and then when I was done, it was over an hour later with all the links. Lots of good stuff to see and read. Thanks again.

Thanks! Interesting. I may be alone in this, but I think it would be fascinating to see that thing work from the beginning when they laid the sub-frame rails and floor pan into it, until the end when the "body in white" was completed and emerged from that thing. :popcorn:

:iagree:

It would have been so cool to have seen how they were put together at the factory.

There must be footage in some archive.  It's fun to see these cars being born.  I recall this video for the '65 Mustang
