Fisher Body Plant 21

A scene from inside the Fisher Body Plant 21 in Detroit Michigan. Fisher Body was an automobile coachbuilder founded by the Fisher brothers in 1908 in Detroit, Michigan; it had been a division of General Motors for many years, but in 1984 was dissolved to form other General Motors divisions.  The name and its iconic “Body by Fisher” logo were well known to the public, as General Motors vehicles displayed a “Body by Fisher” emblem on their door sill plates until the mid-1990s. The company constructed the now-abandoned Fisher Body Plant 21, on Piquette Street, in Detroit, in 1919. The building is now part of the Piquette Avenue Industrial Historic District. At the time, the company had more than 40 buildings encompassing 3,700,000 square feet of floor space.

Its capacity was 370,000 bodies per year and In 1916, the company became the Fisher Body Corporation. Its capacity was 370,000 bodies per year and its customers included Abbot, Buick, Cadillac, Chalmers, Chandler, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Packard, Studebaker and many more. Now an empty shell in the city.
