Ford discovers $100K worth of leather, helps 2 Detroit businesses

Few, if anyone, had any idea what was in the basement.

With demolition underway at the Ford Product Development Center in Dearborn, rooms and closets filled with old furniture and automotive materials that have been out of sight and out of mind for years are being discovered, the Detroit Free Press, a USA TODAY Network publication reports.

Most recently, Ford unearthed about 250 cow hides valued at $450 to $500 each or more than $100,000 — once destined for premium leather seats in the Ford F-150 King Ranch, Ford Explorer, Ford Escape, Lincoln Aviator and Lincoln Navigator.
