Fremont, CA ~ Note Buick (body about to be married to the chassis) and Olds (one car ahead) A-body cars were built along side Chevelles probably accounting for the relatively low production number of Chevelles at Fremont.

Kansas City/Leeds Assembly Plant

Originally being from the Kansas City area but having moved 30 years ago it never dawned on me to visit the old Leeds plant on my frequent trips to KC for car shows. I decided to make it a point to visit the old plant during my visit to KC in 2015 while attending the Mid-America Chevelle Club's show in September. This first photo is a Google Maps overhead of the plant site.

Leeds Chevelle assembly plant. Someone sent me the photos above and the immediate photo above appears to have been taken in the early to mid 40s judging by the worker's cars.
