Master Hands (1936) Chevrolet Manufacturing
Classic "capitalist realist" drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets from foundry to finished vehicles. Though ostensibly a tribute to the "master hands" of the assembly line workers, it seems more of a paean to the designers of this impressive mass production system. Filmed in Flint, Michigan, just months before the United Auto Workers won union recognition with their famous sitdown strikes. Selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally, and socially significant" films.

A RESTORED 1959 EDSEL
In the model year of 1958 Ford Motor launched a new car named after Henry Ford's son, Edsel. Ford Co., thought there was a niche to fill between the Ford car and the next model level Mercury. They thought wrong. There were several reasons for the failure of Edsel, one being it's different if not bizarre styling featuring a " horse collar" grill. Another reason was that there was no niche to fill between Ford and Mercury. Edsel used a lot of Mercury parts so it appeared to be a lower scale Mercury than a upper scale Ford. The economic recession of 1958 also helped to kill sales of the introductory year. This video gives you a tour of a restored 1959 Edsel. The styling was less severe than the fifty eight model year and looks more appealing but it didn't encourage sales for the damaged image was already there. This Edsel is the lower model Ranger. Under the hood lies the six cyclinder Ford engine with dual Exhaust. The exterior paint on this car is excellent while the interior uphostery is not original or authentic but looks great. The bottom line Ranger cost $3,072 and sold 7,778 units out of a model year total of 44,891. The two model years did nothing to increase sales and the 1960 model year was a tacky version of a Ford of which the Ranger model sold 295 two doors at $2,705, and 1,288 four doors at $2697. So, Ranger model totals for 1960 were 1,583. Edsel was cancelled in November '59 after only making 110,847 for the three model years.
