    That's a great video. Love seeing that old footage of the factory and the interviews with the staff. Thanks for posting.

    Curious at around the 19:00 minute mark... are those black coloured frames? They don't look like the gray coloured epoxy ones we're familiar with.

    Well spotted Jonathan. There were a number of cars in the early stages that were used for training and these were referred to as the "black" cars.
    Sorry I don't have any other info.
