Default Chrysler Auctioning Off Entire Hemi Assembly Line

er's figured out how to build the 5.7-liter and 6.1-liter HEMI engines on the same line. Now they're auctioning off the redundant 6.1-liter HEMI assembly line. What would you do with it?

Chrysler is auctioning off an entire 6.1-liter HEMI assembly line in Saltillo, Mexico. Yes, you read that right; the WHOLE assembly line which includes the conveyor; main bearing cap bolt; oil pump; front cover; oil pan bolt; rocker shaft; piston; pin and connecting rod assembly; and a cold test station.
Chrysler spokespeople tell us Chrysler's manufacturing team at the Saltillo Engine Plant were looking at ways to be more efficient and productive.

After some research, they determined they have the capability to produce the 5.7-liter engine and the 6.1-liter engine on the same assembly line. As a result, some of the equipment for the original 6.1-liter line was not needed and therefore is now in the process of being put up for auction. So, it's all redundant equipment. Yeah, some of the coolest redundant equipment on Earth!

The auction runs from December 11th through the 16th and is being handled by Hilco Industrial Auctions. We hear if you call now, they may even throw in a second HEMI line for three easy payments of $19.95!

Chrysler also tells us they're not selling any parts of the line that would compromise its technology from improper/illegal production by a competitor. We don't even know if you can still build an engine with the line. But if you could, it begs the question what would you do with it?
