I don't think they are Fords, but a great photo!

Briggs Body Corp.?

Could those be Briggs bodies made for Chrysler in a portion of the former Ford Highand Park Plant?

No Bondo then. These guys knew how to use body solder.

Looks like the Packard plant...

It is not Highland Park. There are no bay numbers on the columns.

However, the building is almost certainly an Albert Kahn design, like Highland Park.

Respectfully submitted,

I'm with Tony B. This Packard has similar lines to the bodies at right even if the windshield is different.

Those coupe rear ends look very Packard like also.

That top photo is a framed picture hanging in the Ellingson museum in Rogers MN.

Here is a pretty good video of "How Packard Builds a Body", it is in 3 parts. In the first part pay attention to the 42 horsepower that is used to haul the logs at about 3:40 to 4:00 minute mark.
