After the atttack at Pearl Harbor, General Motors and other American car manufacturers formed the Automotive Council for War Production in order to coordinate defense contracting. President Roosevelt established the War Production Board on Jan. 16, 1942, to regulate manufacturing and the allocation of materials vital to the war effort. Car manufacturers stopped production of cars on Feb. 22, 1942, in order to switch to manufacture of necessary military vehicles. General Motors engineer O. E. Hunt addresses this sudden change for automobile manufacturers and what will be required psychologically, particularly as some factories are retooled to produce aircraft rather than land vehicles.
