Hello Everyone,

Rusty here, webmaster for The Old Car Manual Project. It's been a while (10 years!) since there was new material to this site, but we're back at it now and will be adding material regularly. I intend to keep things generally the same as they have been, other than expanding the coverage of the site another 20 years to the end of the 1970s. Please let me know if you have materials that you would like to contribute. You can reach me at

Best Regards,

Rusty Petrovic

Hi Folks,


    Went for over a year without placing any new additions on this site.  Recently completed medical treatments and now back at work.  Since arriving on a salvage tug in New Zealand, I have started putting together manuals for online use that others were kind enough to scan and send my way in the past year or so.  With this update, I have added more than 800 pages of material.  I hope to have plenty more material to add online over the next year.






For ALL Mechanical / Technical Questions concerning your Chevrolet or GMC vehicle which you can not find within some of the manuals on this site, Please ask or post on one of the online forums such as:


Chevy Talk            Stovebolt Page             Chevy Chatter



On these and other forums online are many knowledgeable people that can help you with your inquires. 

There have been times I have been overwhelmed with technical questions, many of which I can not answer.  Please consult the forums listed above. 


I work offshore on various ships and away from home and the internet for extended periods.    During these hitches, I try to work on some of the material to be used in this web site.  When I return home, I upload new manuals and information and I will try to respond to emails and/or correct any problems with the site.   Please continue to bear with me if I don't get back with you on a question or fix a page very quickly. 

     Thank you for your support and checking out this site.  I hope some of this material and information has been useful for you. 


Thank You,

Keith Hardy

Always Looking For and In Need of More Manuals

     If you have any Pre-1960 Used Chevrolet or related Manuals or Materials not listed here and would like to donate them or can scan the pages for this site , please contact me.  Anyone who donates any material will be credited on the site that contains the data.  If  a manual is donated by a business, I can include a web site link to their site.
