To honor American Independence Day, here are some more photos of the former Liberty Motors headquarters at Conner and Charlevoix, just north of Chrysler’s Jefferson North assembly plant on Detroit’s east side. Liberty founder Percy Owens was a very patriotic man. He named his car Liberty, it had a red, white and blue logo and he built the company headquarters building as an exact replica of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. The building has been empty since ThyssenKrupp-Budd sold off their North American body stamping operations and unfortunately it’s now starting to deteriorate due to neglect.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
