'37 Car Model
Production Plants Closed
At Present For Annual
DETROIT, Aug. 8.--(P)-The mo-
torcar industry is entering the sea-
son of the year when a few idle as-
sembly lines precipitate much gossip
and the plans of the car builders are
surrounded with more than the us-
ual amount of secrecy.
A few of the active producing units
of the industry have closed down for
their annual "inventory" periods
which also permit dealers to clear
their floors for the coming models.
The latter, however, will be some
time in making their appearance in
the dealers' stocks, probably little be-
fore Nov. 11 when the major motorcar
exhibition, the New York Automobile
Show, is to get under way.
As a general rule, the dealers, like
the manufacturers, have kept close
to the consumer requirements, and
the problem of disposing of current
stock on hand will bother them not at
all. The fact that many weeks of
favorable driving weather remain be-
tween now and the availability of
1937 types will aid materially, say dis-
tribution authorities, even if the cur-
rent demand tapers off. Because some
dealers are likely to encounter a
shortage of new cars for immediate
delivery while awaiting factory ship-
ments of new types, they add, there is
little likelihood of a sudden, material
withholding of new car purchases.
Moreover, some of the producers
now taking inventory plan to as-
semble a limited additional number of
1936models when they resume opera-
The gossip concerning the plans of
the various manufacturers have it
that certain changes in body styleI
and radiator grills again are to bet
the principal points of difference inI
the majority of 1937 models. This
apparently is one of the safest guessest
currently to be made, for although on1
the face of financial statements theI
industry is in position to make more
radical departures than ever,i
