Do you love Jeeps and need a 1.4-million-square-foot facility to show all your buddies how much of a die-hard Jeep guy you are? Then we have the solution for you! The former headquarters of American Motors Corp. (AMC) is on the auction block. With a starting big of just $500 you can take your shot at owning a piece of automotive history.

The enormous property, located on Plymouth Road near Schafer, is among 25,000 properties that are up for sale in the latest Wayne County tax foreclosure auction. The last three years have seen this once fully functioning automotive complex turn into a wasteland after more that eighty years of American ingenuity.

Now it isn’t all sunshine and lollipops, the winner of the auction would be responsible for the property’s summer tax bill of $160,631, but just think of all the Jeeps, Jeep memorabilia, and room for activities you would have!

The auction runs through October 22, but you’ll need to register by October 8th if you want to bid on this, or one of the other 23,000 properties for sale. Don’t miss your chance to own a part of Jeep’s legacy and have more space than you could ever know what to do with. For more information and to start bidding head over to
