I have just bee sent this link. Really interesting to see a short video of the rootes production line.

Mainly hunters (I think) but sure I spotted a fastback too.

Here's the link

Thanks for that. Very interesting.

It's also startling to see the lack health and safety equipment in the spraying area!

Ahhh...... Memories.

No I'm not that old but I did some time at Ryton and as such the plant did not alter that much.

The film was mainly of the post welding/assembly section.

Known appropriately as BIW (Body in White) due to the dip in primer.

Not certain about the Fastback (Feb 67 seems a little too early), Could have been a Humber Sceptre though.

Sometimes I think laterally, but then I have to get up!
