No Ghosts is a somewhat unusually named 1935 film about Chevrolet chassis design. The title of the film makes sense once you’ve seen it, but you have to watch through the first two minutes or so while the scene is set for the rest of the film.

1935 was a time when almost every motor vehicle on earth was made using a body-on-chassis design, unlike the overwhelmingly popular unibody system used on modern cars.

The benefit to the separate chassis and body was simplicity and the ability to have coachbuilders create their own bodies for chassis that were built by major manufacturers.

Unibodies are preferred now because they can be designed lighter, more rigid, an safer in the event of an accident – but much of the technology required to design and develop modern unibodies wasn’t available until later in the 20th century.

This film does a great job
