Everything on this site has been donated, and a lot of it wasn't cheap to get in the first place.

Yet they're here for the whole world to share, for free!
1947 -1954 GM / Fisher Service Bulletins
added March 14, 2003
Thanks to Ken Sluys of Bellingham, Washington we can share this vast collection of service information. bulletins, containing detailed information on General Motors vehicles of the post-war era that really isn't available anywhere else. For now, the indexes below consist of thumbnails (click on the index link to view) but, as time permits we'll try to come up with a text-based index (any volunteers?).
About the Old Car Manual Project
What we do:
The idea is to scan manuals for old, vintage or antique American vehicles and their components and make them available on the web, for free.
Why are we doing this?
Why not? But really - one of the hardest parts of restoring or servicing old machines is getting decent technical information. Often, it's difficult, impossible or expensive to obtain. We think that this kind of information should be freely available, as a public resource for the preservation of our industrial history.
Who are we?
We are some Guys Who Like Old Iron. We can be contacted here
