  • Description

    Pinewood Stock Can material.

    Various shots in a car building factory. Seems to be quite a small scale plant building open topped sports cars. Good tracking shot along the production line. Various shots of parts being carried around factory on overhead lines. (Unable to identify make of car - probably British).

    Amendment March 2012: A visitor to the site has written in with additional information. The clip is of Triumph TR3s being manufactured in Coventry, mid 50s.

    The cars being assemble are in fact Triumph TR3A which places this video at 1958 or a little later. The TR3a had a wider radiator grille than the TR3.
