We are actively working to promote the preservation of historical documents of the automotive industry.

The Automotive History Preservation Society (AHPS) is an IRS non-profit 501 c(3) public charity that has been in existence since 2010.

What We Are About -

  • We are "Preserving the Past for the Future" - by digitizing the history of the automobile as found in artwork, photographs, print advertisements, manufacturer brochures, period  magazine articles, manufacturer's published training and education materials as well as press photos, vehicle service manuals and guides, and any other appropriate sources.

  • We also promote the history of the automobile through programs with colleges, universities, and training institutions - engaging and financially supporting students with projects that will assist in their education and help us with the collection and digitization of documents.

What We Do -

  • We scan the materials, restore the digital image its original condition and then post it to our Internet-based Digital Documents Library where anyone can view them, or download them or print them. We have over 250,000 pages of material already stored and available. Our staff is composed of experienced archivists, automotive experts and authors as well as many volunteers who donate their time and material to our efforts.

Our Headquarters -

The AHPS is headquartered in Michigan, U.S.A. were we are also registered as a non-profit organization in the State.

Our Funding -

We rely on donations, sponsorships and grants to continue our growth and to fund our projects and scholarship programs. Many donations are tax-deductible. Learn more about us by clicking HERE.
