I have a genuine Ford / Lincoln / Mercury factory workshop manual that covers the V8 and the V12 used in all three marques. It is leather bound with brass corners and still is in its original canvas slip case. Close to 500 pages, used to belong to my uncle who had a 1930 Model A Roadster.

Anyone interested ???????

Would be interested Wasif, if it covers the 1949 onwards Ford Custom V8? If yes, and if you haven't committed to someone else yet, could you please confirm so and we may take it to PM territory thereafter.

Anyone with literature on the Volvo Amazon (120 series) also, please? And the Fiat Elegant? And the Honda CBZ 650?

I'm not looking for freebies, so please be sure that I'm prepared to reimburse all reasonable expectations.

Thanks,

P

If anyone has a 1933 Chevrolet brochure would request a scan of it as I am commencing restoration of such a car and would like to take it back to its original colours

Default Yamaha Advert from 1960

Hello All,

I was doing a bit of cleaning up in my home in TVM recently. Saw this advertisement of Yamaha in the 1964 Life mag.

The quality can not be improved as the mag itself was in bad shape.

Regards

Ram

Default Royal Enfield Sherpa Manual 1968

Dear all, I could get two pages from the instruction manual of Royal Enfield Sherpa (1968) from my father. This bike he owned for three years from 1974. This could be helpful for 82Rawath who restores a Sherpa. The Classic Advertisement/Brochure Thread.-1a.jpgThe Classic Advertisement/Brochure Thread.-2a.jpg

Am sure you have seen this

Old Online Chevy Manuals

I have a whole range of owner manuals scanned, do give me a reminder on friday night (when I get home) and I shall get them across.

Do share details of the restoration with us as well.

What type of chevy is it?
Have a few friends back home that would be pleased to do some research for you and the more info I can offer the better to prime their pumps, any photos of the car you can post would be great and perhaps you can start a separate thread on the car.

Thanks Karlos I will remind you.

John its a 1933 Chevrolet Eagle Phaeton. I don't know if you've heard of the TVS group, its the founder's car and I have the privilege of doing a no compromise nut bolt restoration of the same.

The car originally I am told was a light green dark green combo. If I can get a brochure then we can see what combo suits the car best.

I intend addressing every aspect of the car mechanical and otherwise

Thanks Vintagepoint5, have seen the material you refer to.
