With the doors closing at the Elizabeth Holden Assembly Plant, the National Motor Museum is set to launch ‘[Re]assembled: Australia’s automotive manufacturing journey’ a new permanent exhibition with the aim to preserve the Holden workers’ legacy and the story of the assembly plant that has sustained thousands of South Australian families.
The large scale project will involve the installation of seven stages of the assembly line from the Elizabeth plant to the ceiling of the National Motor Museum; each station will carry a vehicle at a different stage of assembly. The story of the process will be communicated via video projects on the vehicles and screen-based information suspended from the vehicles. At floor level, the social history of Holden vehicle manufacturing will be told through a focus on the people of the Elizabeth Plant.
[Re]Assembled will officially open on Sunday 24 September, coinciding with one of the biggest days in the South Australian historic motoring calendar, the Bay to Birdwood.
