Check the "Library" at American Classic Truck Parts -- besides books, they have many manuals, brochures, booklets, all sorted by years. Another great source for on-line manuals is Keith Hardy's Old On-line Chevy Manuals project. As a matter of fact, if you've got a manual to donate to this project, it would be great for everyone. So far, Keith has over 130 manuals with over 13,000 pages (pre-1960) ...all for free! And he's consistently updating it.
Google Books --
Search the latest index of the world's books at Google Books. Find millions of great books you can preview or read for free. I typed in "old GM trucks" and Tom Brownell's "Retoring Your Chevy Pickup" was first in the stack. Click on it, and you get to preview of 18 pages!
And our local public library now is on-line with a pretty cool data base for searching for information. You might want to see if that is available in your area, too. I can hunt down a book and reserve it on-line. Then just drop by to pick it up. Quite nifty, I'd say.
Free stuff ... isn't it GREAT!
We decided not to include manuals in the book list since there are soooo many of them. Between American Classic Truck Parts and the Manuals Project ... you ought to find what you need. If not, try Amazon and Motorbooks International.
