Fisher Body 21

Fisher Body 21

In the early days of automobile manufacturing it was often cheaper to outsource the manufacture of bodies to a separate company, as car bodies were made of wood and metal and thus required skilled tradesmen. Enter Fisher Body, established in 1908, Fisher would go on to become a leading manufacturer of automobile bodies in the early 20th century. By 1917 General Motors outsources all their work to Fisher. To meet the demand Fisher expanded their already vast network of plants. Plant 21, designed by Albert Khan was constructed in 1919 and focused primarily on metal stamping. Post-WW2 the plant constructed components for bus, limos, and ambulances. However when this was moved to Flint, MI the site was shut down in 1984. It operated as an industrial painter from 1990-1993 before that to went bankrupt. Today it sits empty, and remain contaminated despite EPA cleanup from 2004 to 2010.

Fifty-9 Buick Forty-4-Eleven

Fifty-Nine Buick Forty-Four-Eleven

This was the coolest, most awesome car or truck I at any time owned… a 1959 Buick LeSabre “two-door article” sedan. I owned it from 2007 to 2011. My LeSabre was a product series 4411 car or truck with one particular exciting alternative: the shiny-perform (stainless steel / chrome) about the window frames. The 1959 product year was the biggest paradigm shift in the history of the enterprise. not only had been the cars all new, with dynamic styling and cleanse graceful traces but underneath the 1959 GMs had been floor up redesigned. Chrysler Corp’s “Ahead Glimpse” cars of 1957 created an explosive impact on the automotive styling of subsequent many years. Also really worth noting, ninety nine% of the the 1959 Buick cars created had been geared up with possibly the “Twin Turbine” or “Triple Turbine” transmission. Initially acknowledged as the “Dynaflow” when it was introduced in the 1948 product year it was the 1st Constantly Variable Transmission, or CVT in a production car or truck. Ahead of its use in Buick’s cars the Dymaflow was intended & produced by Buick in the M18 “Hellcat” tank destroyer of WWII.
