Note with image: 'One of the most dramatic points in the automobile assembly process at the new General Motors plant in Fremont, Calif., is the 'body drop' station on the final assembly line. Here, car bodies are lowered -- according to a precise schedule -- onto their matching chassis which have been assembled in another area of the plant. Linking together all production departments throughout the two-million square foot facility, an electronic 'broadcasting' system assures that the correct parts and accessories for a given car will arrive at the proper place at exactly the right time.'
Note with image: 'Passenger cars receive their gleaming exterior finish at the General Motors Fremont Assembly Plant in paint-spray booths of the latest design. the large volume of fresh air supplied to each booth -- sufficient for more than 300 average-size homes -- is electrostatically filtered. Temperature and humidity of incoming air are also closely controlled, contributing further to the high quality of 'paint jobs' at Fremont.'
