Chrysler Delaware Tank Plant


Newark Teachers at the Chrylser Plant.

Many of the teachers were instructors at Central Middle School and Newark High.


The first two Chrysler-built production models of the Patton 48 medium tank are shown as they were driven from the factory April 11, 1952 for delivery to Army Ordnance.


Patton 48 tanks move down the assembly line at the new Chrysler Delaware Tank Plant, Newark, Delaware. Where this tremendous operation goes on, there were only barren fields in January, 1951. Less than 12 months later, the first tanks rolled from this line.
