My alma mater, Chevrolet Flint Assembly, was originally a Fisher Body/Chevrolet combination. It merged wholly under Chevrolet a few years before I started there in 1979.

There was a wall inside the building that separated the two divisions. The wall is still there....with a large pass through to facilitate truck and forklift traffic.
