This 1938 - 1939 Packard Shop Manual by Detroit Iron® is a high-quality, licensed, PRINT reproduction of the shop manual written and first published by the experts at the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Packard Motor Car Company, for use by their dealership mechanics.  Packard deservedly earned their reputation as a premier manufacturer of luxury automobiles.  Then, as now, there's a difference in quality.  This beautifully reprinted maintenance and repair manual is no exception.  It's the best available for your classic machine.  This auto repair book has been assembled well.  Even the index is a breeze to use.  It's in table format.  The components and systems are listed on the left, and over to the right, you'll find separate columns for the six, 120 eight, super eight and even the mighty twelve.  Locate the powerplant and each has its own column displaying page numbers.  Check out the Table of Contents to see for yourself.

Loaded with over 150 detailed pages, it contains the factory-correct procedures and specifications.  From minor tune-ups to major teardowns, this book has you covered.  Chapters include brakes, chassis oiling, chassis suspension, clutch, cooling, electrical, engine, frame, fuel system, overdrive, rear axle, reference data, steering system, transmission and universal joints. 

Not only is this Packard shop manual comprehensive, but the layout is outstanding.  Throughout this guide, you'll find easy-to-follow, step-by-step text instructions conveniently paired with a huge number and variety of excellent visual aids.  There are illustrations, cut-away views, black and white photographs, wiring diagrams, exploded views, tables and more, providing you unmatched clarity for your Packard projects.

The Motor Bookstore™ continues to offer the best products.  That's why we've chosen to carry the Detroit Iron® version of this 1938 - 1939 Packard Shop Manual.  They deliver the finest reproduction literature because Detroit Iron® uses first-class materials (such as thick paper) and prepares the content with industry-leading, digital technology.  The results are dark text, clean backgrounds and sharp visual aids.  They retain ALL of the content from the original source.  Please check out the sample page we've included to see the quality of the instructions, how well they are complemented by the visual tools and how efficiently the subject matter is presented.  This sample is related to the overdrive unit.  Overdrive...in 1939!  That's another great example of Packard's innovative and "ahead of the times" thinking. 

The advertising executives at Packard certainly knew what they had...and weren't afraid to stand behind these great cars.  Their slogan was, "Ask the man who owns one."  When you make a good product, you want potential customers to talk with your current ones.  If you get a chance to speak with a Detroit Iron® customer, we're sure they'll vouch for the quality of this magnificent, helpful, reproduction shop manual.
