Happy Birthday Fisher Auto Body

By motortopia

We have all worked on them...our cars.

And that means we have all worked on the cars bodies, which also means we have likely worked on something produced by Fisher Body Company.

On this day, July 22, 1908 the Fisher Body Company was established and rapidly grew to dominate the auto body industry; supplying bodies to all major American manufacturers.

In fact, every body from GM between 1919 and 1944 pass the approval of a Fisher Body inspector.

That is hard to think of in this day and age of multiple "on time" suppliers, but that was the case.

Like many things automotive, the company started out as a "horseless carriage company" but quickly grew into one of America's largest manufacturing companies, and was ultimately acquired by GM.
