1941 Buick Christmas Card

6" x 9-1/2". Two pages.  Full color.  On September 17, 1941, keys to the $41,000,000 Buick Aviation Plant at Melrose Park, Illinois were turned over to Harlow H. Curtice, President and General Manager of the Buick Motor Division. Buick was intensely proud of this new plant that would build the Pratt & Whitney 1,200 HP "Twin Wasp" radial aviation engine at the rate of 1,000 per month for the Army Air Corps. This Christmas card, used by Buick during the 1941 holiday season shortly after the opening of its Melrose Park, Illinois plant, proudly displayed Buicks pride in its large-scale contribution to the war effort.
