Auto Specialties Mfg. Co.

Located on Tecumseh Rd. just east of Howard Ave. this massive plant is another part of Windsor’s long gone industrial might, replaced by the Medical Building, that runs from Hanna to Tecumseh Road.

A quick check on the Google, shows the company is still around today, in Benton Harbor, MI.

The ad above dates to the early 1960’s. Does anyone out there remember the company or have any relatives that worked there? Any idea when it left town?
