Who we are
The Automotive History Preservation Society (AHPS) is a non-profit 501 c3 organization that has been in existence since 2010. We are digitally preserving the written and printed history of the automobile in pictures, period advertisements, brochures, magazine articles, and manufacturer's published materials and other documentation - for YOU.
What we do
The AHPS finds printed historical material from auto manufacturers, suppliers, the aftermarket, individuals, automotive publishers, writers, and even artists and designers. Much of this material is not available anywhere else.
- All material is carefully restored and then digitized. Then we make it accessible and available through our Digital Documents Library.
- We also compile materials from multiple sources for easy access and reference in our Technical Info Center.
- AND we write articles using the materials - to give you a picture of the history of the automobile, current activities, and historical events. These are placed in our News and Feature Articles Section.
You may access these materials by clicking on the buttons below. A limited amount of material is only available to members. This is a small amount of our over 250,000 pages of documentation.
How you can help!
As a non-profit 501 c3 organization, the AHPS relies on donations, dues from our members and contributions from sponsors for the working capital to continue our efforts. Contributions go directly into the collection of materials and the operation of the website. You can also volunteer to help! E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
