1996 Dodge Viper Hardcover Brochure - the very last one...
01-29-2004, 07:24 AM
Hello Dodge Viper enthusiests,
I have one of these 1996 hardcover Dodge Viper GTS brochures left to sell; a party that was interested in purchasing this brochure is now no longer, ergo I am going to offer it here, first come. First email I recieve confirming that they infact do intend to purchase it, it will be theirs.
In late 1995 my employer (I work for a large commercial printer) was given the contract to produce the regular showroom brochure for the launch of the 96 Viper GTS.
As a special "thank-you" to the many folks who participated in creating the regular brochure, Chrylser Corp (pre Diamler) created and gave out 250 specially designed "hardcover" editions as gifts to the people involved in the 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 photo-retouching and color work on the brochure).
250 of these books exist.
233 were handed out.
The remainder (17), once kept in our company sample room until last March when they were pulled for the shredder to be ground into confetti and then recycled (they purge the sample room every 5 years), were rescued.
I took some of them, sold a few and kept some.
You will never find these at any auto-shows, eBay or anywhere else.
So if you are interested, I have ONE hardcover 1996 Dodge Viper GTS brochure that is for sale.
It is still sealed in it's original protective wrap.
The brochure is a blue w/ white stripes in a leather-like finish (not real leather) with a real beaming metal chrome and blue Viper badge.
I am (firmly) asking 175.00 shipped (2 day Priority, I will cover the postage).
If interested, I will gladly send you pictures of it.
My eBay user name is rlpolkus, you can check my feedback for assurance.

Thanks kindly for your time,
