Fisher Body Builds for GM
By the 1950s the company started by the Fisher Brothers to provide custom
bodies for rich people had become the pillar of General Motors
manufacturing empire. Every division relied on Fisher body to deliver the
sheet metal it would sell. Eventually, the Fisher division was done away
with when it was considered to be too ungainly but in the 50s it was the
king of auto manufacturing.

In 1959 the Corvair became the first rear-engine production car made in
