Description

The American automobile industry essentially shut down for the duration of World War II -- shut down its civilian production, that is. American automakers turned their plants and workforces to the manufacture of war materiel. This 1943 advertisement features just some of the military items built by Ford Motor Company including tanks, jeeps, airplane engines, gliders, and B-24 bomber planes.
