Color and Upholstery Albums
Color/Upholstery Albums are special books which are difficult to find because the car and truck manufacturers usually sold only one Album to a dealership and many dealerships did not preserve them after the model year. Many of them make interesting and unusual collectors items . Color/Upholstery Albums have actual samples of the different upholstery which a customer could select for his new car. They also has color paint chips to show the actual paint colors available from the factory.
Actual factory Color/Upholstery samples are presented in Albums like those shown above. Information about color codes and recommended color/upholstery combinations is usually presented along with the swatches. Frequently, the upholstery swatches are glued onto a page showing the interior seats (as depicted below). Sometimes, as shown above in the 1963 Ford Color/Upholstery Album, the paint chips are presented with transparencies of the available models, so that the customer can see what his car would look like in each of the available colors.
Many serious collectors exhibit these albums in the trunks of their cars to win extra points during a competition.
