Yep,
... and for another great photo of "356 Buck at factory" ...
see "Excellence Was Expected" ... almost a centerfold pic ...
worth serious scrutiny for .edu purposes:
1) buck looks new - no black smear marks from fitting up panels
2) shavings under, on the floor - "proofing the buck" by working up a first set of panels - and shaving the wood to get the correct contours
3) misc panels laying about, I "think" aluminum? with snippets mixed in with shavings ... been decades since I studied this image ....
4) really cool image, altogether.
