1944 Pontiac

From John Gunnell’s book “75 Years of Pontiac Oakland“:

“Pontiac was quite proud of the role its products – both automotive and military – were playing in the nations was effort.”

“One of Pontiac’s most crucial contributions to the war was the high-volume production of aircraft-launched Naval torpedos. Here again, the job was a complex operation, as each torpedo had over 5,222 parts. In just a few short months the division had gone from building Torpedo-bodied cars to the real thing. As usual, both jobs were accomplished with a high degree of skill and craftsmanship.”
