Forgotten Detroit Factory AMC Cars | Abandoned Michigan Adventure
This factory produced AMC Cars and you will never guess what is in the tower!
While driving through Detroit Motor City I made a pit stop at the long-abandoned AMC car factory. At 1.46 million square feet it is huge. It built in between 1926 and 1927 as a Kelvinator appliance factory. They merged with Nash Motors in 1937. During this time they even were contracted to assemble helicopters for Sikorsky Aircraft. After merging with Hudson Motors in 1954 the became AMC or American Motors Corporation. It was the AMC Headquarters during this time. AMC was purchased by Chrysler in 1987. The property became the Jeep and Truck Engineering Center. In 1996 Chrysler moved the research center and much of the work. Chrysler went bankrupt in 2007 and the last employees left the car factory to be put up for sale in 2009. The property now sits abandoned and for sale. A great little Michigan adventure.
