Fisher Body Craftsmanship Goes to War
Exceedingly rare brochure depicting the history of Fisher Body’s wartime efforts. In peacetime, Fisher Body, as the world's largest manufacturer of automobile bodies, made numerous contributions to automobile beauty, comfort, safety and convenience in the years since its founding in 1908. In 1910, it became the first company to produce closed automobile bodies in quantity at a time when the closed body was virtually a novelty.
BY: The Fisher Body Corporation, 1945: BUT THIS IS THE STORY OF FISHER BODY AT WAR. IT IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED TO OUR FIGHTING MEN WHO HAVE USED THE PRODUCTS OF OUR CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THE CAUSE OF JUSTICE AND FREEDOM.
Throughout our assignments for war, our single objective was to give our fighting men the finest weapons that our craftsmanship could produce, and to do so at the greatest possible speed. Because Fisher Body, along with other divisions of General Motors, willingly accepted the more difficult and exacting assignments, all of our skills and techniques have been devoted to these tasks. We were fortunate in having in our organization years of accumulated experience in engineering and manufacturing knowledge. Without these skills the diversified and difficult tasks assigned to us could not have been accomplished. In war, as in peace, ours has been an organization job-the accomplishment of a group of individuals working together in the spirit of American teamwork. It is only through the complete integration of these numerous and varied skills within our organization and the whole-hearted determination and effort of all the men and women of Fisher Body that we have been able to fulfill the responsibilities which our government entrusted to us.
