Body by Fisher


Recommended Posts

Anyone else ever see one of these stamps in their R model door sill, driver side? A quick Google search shows Fisher to have been a cab manufacturer of automobiles, but Wikipedia gave no hint towards a relationship with Mack.

Aluminum sill cover plate on the steel rocker unit?  Looks like someone added a sill cover plate from one of the Generals lumps.

Cab has a Scott Contractors logo faded on the door. We've owned it a long time, we wouldn't have put it in. Which way were the tags typically oriented? This one is upside down when standing outside the truck. Probably not the factory orientation.

Fisher logo generally faces out when you open the door.

Wikipedia has the story. Basically the company has been around since 1908? Used to make auto cabs for a lot of companies until GM bought em out. Tags were just their way of putting their name on their product.

Fisher Body was a GM division that ran GM stamping plants, Body by Fisher. GM used to build most of there own parts with there own parts plants, like AC Sparkplug, there were many parts divisions. Delco and Guide (lights) come to mind. GM was built from companies like Fisher Body.

Harrison radiators, Saginaw transmissions and steering gear, Rochester carburetors, Frigidaire air conditioning, Muncie transmissions....

Remember when it was Delco Remy ?

Fisher, although a GM owned subsidiary, also stamped the body panels for the 1973 to 1976 Ford Thunderbird. They did some for the Ford Granada, and Mercury Monarch also. Not guessing as I was repairing cars when those were common on the roads.
