General Motors sometimes combined their Data Books and Color Upholstery Albums into one publication, known as a Dealer Album.
If you have a Chrysler or Ford product, you should look for a separate Data Book and Color Upholstery Album. In some model years, General Motors,
like Chrysler and Ford, published its Data Books and Color Upholstery Albums separately. If you are interested in a Dealer Album, you should also
check out the Data Book and Color Upholstery pages on this site.
Dealer Albums, like Data Books and 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, never distributed them to the general
public, and many dealerships failed to preserve them. They are now interesting and unusual collectors items.
Dealer Albums, like Data Books, usually
have illustrations of the various exterior options available in that model year (as in the illustrations above). These are helpful for restoration
details or, in the case of a question, as an authoritative source. Like Color/Upholstery albums, they also have a section with actual factory
swatches of upholstery and trim fabrics, paint chip samples and pictures of interior upholstery.
