Automobile Reference Collection
Detroit-- The first all-aluminum bodied car, a Chevrolet Corvette study vehicle is being shown for the first time by the builder, Reynolds Metals Company, at the annual meeting of the Society of Automotive Engineers here (Feb. 25-Mar 1). The experimental car proved that an aluminum body is about 40 per cent lighter than steel while providing the same strength and saving about 400 pounds in the body alone.
