AACA Museum Collection

What was your first car? Do you have a dream car?

You may find them at the AACA Museum, Inc. The Museum collection numbers over 150 vehicles, all of which have been donated. Exhibited vehicles are rotated regularly. The vehicle collection is subject to change. Not every vehicle is on display; some are not in exhibitable condition. Check our current exhibitions to see what’s on display now, or browse the upcoming exhibits to see what’s around the corner.

At any given time, you can see 85-100 of these classic cars, trucks, motorcycles and buses on display.

Collection vehicles span almost a century of American motoring from the 1895 Chicago Motor Benton Harbor to a 1977 Chrysler Cordoba with “fine Corinthian leather” seats. You’ll also see trucks and specialty vehicles like a 1924 REO Funeral Hearse or a 1935 Autocar Atlantic Tank Truck, as well as rare vehicles like our four magnificent Stearns-Knights and a pair of 1917 Pierce-Arrows that were “retired” to the museum after decades of use.

Tucker Automobiles: The Cammack Collection & Tucker Club of America Collection

See the World’s largest display of Tucker ’48 Automobiles and related artifacts.

This permanent, interactive, and educational exhibit involves visitors in the compelling story of the development of the Tucker ’48 Automobile.  These historic vehicles and dynamically displays allow us to share their unique and advanced features. Beyond the cars, we’ve chronicled Preston Tucker’s vision, determination, and struggles that are so much a part of the marque’s history.

There are three Tucker ’48 Automobiles – #1001 (1st Production Car) #1022 and #1026 (the only survivor with automatic transmission.)   There is also a Tucker “movie car” from the 1988 film “Tucker:  The Man and his Dream” from the Tucker Automobile Club of America Collection.

Route 66 Exhibit

In 2016,  the AACA Museum was able to raise funds to redesign our Rocky Mountains scene and turn this into a Route 66 gallery. Driving is an integral part of our culture.   It is woven into the fabric of our history and is evidence of changing times.  An iconic stretch of roadway, Route 66, plays both an emotional and historical reference in American transportation history.
