Something I always like to have when working on my car is a little knowledge about what I am fixing. Now I’m not claiming to be a ’55 Chevy Belair expert, but with the help of the Chevrolet Passenger Car Shop Manual that I ordered from Midlife Classic Cars I’ll feel like I have a factory trained Chevy Technician helping me.
This is the same manual used by Mechanics in 1955 and is a licensed GM Reprint including sections on: Complete rebuild/tune-up info on all engine sizes for 1955, General info, A/C, Lubrication, Body, Frame, Front Suspension, Rear Axle, Rear Suspension, Brakes, Engine / Cooling, Fuel System, Electrical, Transmission, Exhaust System, Steering, Wheels & Tires, Radiator and Grille, Bumpers, Heater & Accessories. Vital information for the enthusiast who is rebuilding or restoring a 1955 car.
Who would I be to turn this type of help down? If you plan on working on any type of vehicle, old or new, I would definately recommend a shop manual for the car you own. It can help you save time and headaches in the long run.
