HISTORIC (1971-1975) COST-REVENUE ANALYSIS OF THE AUTOMOTIVE OPERATIONS OF THE MAJOR U.S. AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTS MANUFACTURERS

A cost-revenue analysis is performed for the manufacture of automotive vehicles for the four major U.S. automotive manufacturers: American Motors Corp., Chrysler Corp., Ford Motor Co., and General Motors Corp. The analysis used a "top-down" methodology based principally on corporate operating statements and supporting notes published in corporate annual reports and SEC 10K forms. The study entailed the disaggregation of the consolidated corporate financial data presented and the identification or estimation of data pertinent to automotive operations. In the study, automotive operations were examined at three levels of disaggregation: (a) Worldwide automotive operations; (b) North American (U.S. and Canada) automotive operations; (c) U.S. manufacture of passenger vehicles and light trucks.
