1996 Dodge Viper GTS 'HARDCOVER' Brochure

12-12-2003, 09:43 AM
If I am posting this thread in the wrong area (yes, I am aware that this is a “discussion forum”), please forgive me this once. This is my first time posting here.

In late 1995 my employer (I work for a very large commercial printer in Los Angeles) was given the contract to produce the regular showroom brochure for the launch of the 1996 Dodge Viper GTS.

Chrylser Corp (pre Diamler) created and gave out 250 specially designed "hardcover" editions as "thank-you" gifts to the people involved in this GTS project; from the Viper team at Chrysler Design Studios all the way down to the printer of the brochure (I personally did nearly all the post photography photo-retouching and color work on this brochure as well as many other automobile brochures over the last 20 years).

250 of these books exist.

233 were handed out as gifts.

The remainder (17), were once kept in our company sample room until last March when they were pulled destined for the paper shredder to be ground into confetti and then recycled (they purge the sample room every 5 years); some were rescued.

I found a few of them. I am still looking for the others.

You will never find these at any auto-shows, eBay or anywhere else.

So if you are interested, I have a couple hardcover 1996 Dodge Viper GTS brochures that are for sale.

They are still sealed in their original wrap.

The brochure is a blue w/ white stripes in a leather-like finish (not real leather) with a real beaming metal/chrome and metalic deep blue signature Viper badge affixed.

I am asking 175.00 for each (shipped, I will cover postage). Just in time for Christmas.

If interested, I will send you pictures of it.

My eBay user name is rlpolkus, you can check my feedback for assurance, it is quite worthy.

Thanks very much for your time,
