Kaiser-Frazer Tail Fins – The Kaiser-Frazer Corporation was founded on July 25, 1945 by Henry J. Kaiser and Joseph W. Frazer. Production of the Kaiser automobile and the Frazer automobile began in 1947 and were very popular in the late 40s. At first they were two separate makes that shared a common body up to 1950. The 1947 Kaiser’s and Frazer’s were some of the first newly designed cars after World War II.
Henry Kaiser and Joseph Frazer had repeated disagreements over production. Joseph Frazer left the company in 1951 and the Frazer automobile was not produced in 1952. In 1953 Henry J. Kaiser bought the Willys-Overland company and formed the Kaiser-Willys Corporation. By the end of 1955 production of the Kaiser automobile stoped.
