John Michaels sends us this interesting bit of automotive history... Here is a 1936 Ford Tudor Sedan (1 of only 4 in existence), built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum Steel:

These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive them for one year. The V-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth and quite.
It is known that the dies were ruined by stamping the stainless car parts, making these the last of these cars ever produced. (more info)
If only US auto industry was as rust-free and enduring as these vintage vehicles...
Ha! Godzilla Cloud
