Does anyone have pics of the presses that were used to make fenders from 68 and 69 Dodge and Plymouth and pics of them in the process of making a fender? I have been searching on line but with no luck.

Thanks
Robert

Google is your friend, there's plenty of pics, text and videos of manufacturing for any make from the teens to present day, just type in the appropriate search and scan the web, images or videos available

Ya, lots of assembly line pics but nothing comes up for the press machines used to make the fenders. I was hoping someone would have some pics of them in action.

You are going to find, Danly, Verson, Minster, Clearing, Rouselle presses in the 60s automotive stamping shops.
If you are looking for those machines in action, just look at current photos, most are still being used after refurbishment.
I toured the Ford Stamping plant and Chrysler Belvidere about 15 years ago and there were a few new pieces, but most were the presses from the 60s with new tooling.
No photos inside allowed then.

All told, the presses you saw in the 60s may have been produced in the late 30s or early 40s for the WWII effort. The forging factory I worked in in the 90s still had 8 of the 10 presses that were a 1940 vintage with updated brakes and clutches, and a few safety items added. Not a lot has changed in press machine design through the years. They have only become larger, and operate faster. Gene
