Sample books for automotive interiors

Where can I get Detroit car books? I’m looking to buy a collection.

Companies that do automotive upholstery are familiar with Detroit Car Books; they’re sample books that show the fabrics used in OEM automotive interiors for a particular year. You can purchase them through suppliers that specialize in automotive fabrics. For example, we found them at Detroit Body Products. If you’re looking for a whole collection of them, though, your best bet is to look for listings of automotive upholstery shops that are closing and may have them to sell; publications such as the Upholstery Journal or the Upholsterer would be helpful for that. Another option is to keep an eye on online auction sites such as eBay.
