Beautifully summarized in their promotional material: “The Detroit Public Library’s National Automotive History Collection documents the history and development of the automobile.”
It is the “world’s largest public automotive archive, making available more than one million documents, collected over more than a century.”
The good news for Corvette enthusiasts around the world is ...
that Corvette is exceptionally well represented! For residents of Michigan and for visitors to the Great Lake State, this library is worth the trip!
For example, if you are in process of restoring a Corvette, could you use any of the following resources?
Dealership Color & Trim Books
Sales Brochures / Catalogs
The Auto Repair Reference Center (an on-line database with factory drawings and step-by-step photographs)
All of this information, and so much more, is available at the NAHC. Check them out!
