If automobiles are your business, you know automotive design. We know steel. And we know the best way to use steel to help you get the most out of your design. This combined knowledge can't miss in producing great cars. You can select from 10,000 different types and forms of USS Steels for automotive use, and get expert technical advice on how to use them. Ask about U.S. Steel innovations for the automotive industry. Write United States Steel, Room 4346, 525 Wm. Penn Place, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15230.
First we created some complex automotive designs. Then we solved each design problem with a practical use of steel. Result? The Innovari. Even though you won't see this experimental sports station wagon on the road, every steel innovation that went into it has a practical application today.
Transparent Stainless Steel covers the tail lights, instrument panel and a section of the inside door panel. The Stainless Steel is photoelectrically etched with perforations so small they're almost invisible. It looks solid until backlighted, then the Stainless Steel is transparent. The cantilevered rear seat is a bench type modification of the torsion bar concept introduced earlier by U. S. Steel. This means fewer parts.
Touch a button and the Innovari doors open on a single stamped steel hinge. The door and quarter inner panels are USS Embossed Carbon Steel that match the interior soft trim. U. S. Steel has 18 different patterns of Embossed Steel on the market. For beauty and durability, the roof panel, door panel insert, fender mouldings and exhaust stacks are USS Stainless Steel.
The Innovari is 52 inches high, but it has the package area of a car having a 55-inch
height. With full use of carbon steel capability, we reduced the size of the header so
there's more window area and less visual obstruction. U. S. Steel developed a new
adhesive PQE 1that bonds together the inner and outer hood panels and the
inner and outer door panels. PQE 1 muffles noise and can reduce spot welding or surface
grinding. The inner hood panel doubles as a carburetor air duct and reduces the hood
height by reducing the air cleaner thickness. Where structural rigidity counts in
the cowl, toe board and underbodywe used a lightweight USS Steel Sandwich panel
concept in combination with the steel frame.
Although he is best known as a jazz vibraphonist, he is also proficient at all
percussion instruments. He has played under Toscanini and augments the percussion section

disc jockey for FM station WQRS on the Detroit scene.
