Item Description

This 1956-1960 Corvette Chassis Service Operations manual is a quality reprint of the original manual as issued by the Chevrolet Motor Division of the General Motors Corporation. Originally intended for use by dealership mechanics, it contains essential instructions for maintaining the engine and R.P.O. (Regular Production Options) equipment. This includes engine tuning, mechanical testing and adjustments, ignition timing testing, 4-speed transmission work, carburetor servicing and much more. The shop manual provides detailed instructions, along with exploded view illustrations, specifications and component details. It's the perfect complement to the official factory shop manual, and essential for anyone working on one of these fine classics.

The Corvettes of the late 50s and early 60s were extremely stylish and powerful cars. They had grown up fast from the initial offering and provided a glimpse of even bigger and better things to come. It's no wonder they were popular then and have remained so throughout the years. The Corvette quickly evolved from a sporty car to a sports car, capable of spending time at the track, or hitting route 66 for an adventure. Whatever you decide to do with yours, you're going to want the details to keep it at its best. Be sure to pick up this definitive guide. It is filled with not only well-written text, but thoughtful visual aids which offer great clarity for the tasks at hand.
