I think that film must be from Dagenham, England. The car coming out the end was a model 62 Ford. Those were the ones that had the first V8-60.

A whole lot of cranking going on. A camera man had to work harder in that day and age.

Hope I'm not hijacking Ron here, but while you're in the Youtube wormhole, here's one on the new car in 1932, the last few minutes are about the KSO Economy run in a 1933 car.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md6V_7QiIVY

There's also a blooper of sorts, from 2:02 to 2:25 it includes a bit about the production number being stamped on the first production engine/transmission that HF does. He puts on his glasses and someone (Sorensen?) gives him instructions where to make the stamping, next with no glasses he's seen doing the deed, and then it cuts to a closeup where you see the number 1 is upside down twice in the *18-1*.

35Fordtn told me that was something like the 245th block cast.
I know I have that number wrong.
