Tech 101: How metallurgy makes a better automobile

If you haven’t gleaned it by now, these old Chevrolet sales films were meant less to provide comprehensive technical information and more to introduce the car-buying public to concepts and methods they didn’t encounter on a day-to-day basis. (Thus the reason we’re still on Tech 101 rather than moving on to the sophomore-level classes.) Still, it was pretty awesome that they trusted the general public to grasp certain concepts, such as how automakers use metallurgy to tailor certain alloys to certain tasks in an automobile, as this 1938 Jam Handy video, uploaded to YouTube by USAutoIndustry, shows.
