Recently I was thoughtfully handed over a small collection of interesting manuals/books/catalogues after a neighbour passed away. Particularly interesting were the 4 books 'Czechoslovak Motor Review', thankfully in English. They are dated to 1957/58.

Should anyone want a specific copy, do let me know, I can scan and share.

Bought this book which talks about the evolution of car, not a definitive book and not exhaustive, but what amazes us that the book is divided in chapters and each chapter is devoted to one era of Automotive history. And then each chapters has a folder containing blue prints, advt. etc.

In an all a very good coffee table book. Harit would love this

Thanks for the correction señor.

I also have The Automobile - A century of Progress by SAE Publications. Again a good book to read as this talks about the technologies through the ages. But is a little outdated as the book was publised in the late 90's.

This is a very good book gifted by my colleague from US. 75 years of Caterpillar (A history book). Tough not relating to Cars but definitely have engines and transmission in them. There is a 100 years of Caterpillar book too (yet to get that one).

This one is pretty good book with lot of pictures and description. Must have for a lover of Caterpillar Equipments.

Great collection of Fiat Books.
Have you scanned any of them to share?

When I purchased my 1962 Fiat 1100, it came with an original Italian Instruction Book, which showed the Standard, Deluxe and Family Models.
I've scanned the entire Book and have shared with a number of BHP members via email. If you would like a copy pleased let me know and I will email it to you or any other member. It has the wiring diagram and lots of details.

Default Re: Vintage & Classic car parts info

I am looking for Hm contessa data manual. Where can I find one?

What I am looking for is book which contains complete assembly information, engine mounting, part information, specifications and so on.

Is something like this available in market or a soft copy of the same? A web link also would be useful.
