Not the assembly line, but old pics when the car was new.

Here are pics from the assembly line in Fremont, California.
No pics from GM-a-body's but this is the place where my El Camino was born.

Well...I found a white elephant. An actual assembly line pic of the 1st 1973 G/A being worked over on the line.  Enjoy.

The '77 Elco I bought new was built in Fremont Ca. The first one I had was a '73, built in Texas, and the fit of the fenders, doors, etc was better on the '73. On the '77 I had to tweak the shims etc to get the body fitting better.

Love these old pics. Fun to look at the way the workers in the pics are dressed. Saftey regs definatly less in those days. Also in the pic of the Genral Motors sign you think they would have croped out the TBird in that one. LOL

Yes.  We still build cars with the build sheet taped to the front.

Very cool ... love those old photos!

I thought someone "back in the day" had posted a thread of pics of the assembly of G3s ... but maybe not?  Or, maybe that was a different board, perhaps?
