Reference Material and Sites Relating to 1958 Oldsmobiles and Customizing Hot Rods

BOOKS AND PRINT

BOOKS I'VE USED
Books I have in my Library that have helped with the project.

  1. 1958 Oldsmobile Shop Manual - This is a "must have." I got mine on Ebay.


     
  2. Oldsmobile Chassis Parts Catalog - These often span several years. Be sure to select one that includes vehicles from 1958. These can be pretty expensive.


     
  3. Key To Metal Bumping - I should have bought this book before I started wacking the dents out of Oldsmotron. This book is short, easy to read, and answers tons of questions. How do you swing a body hammer? It's in there. Where do you start? It's in there. A great reference that is well worth the money. It can be purchased at Eastwood, but I'm guessing it may be available cheaper at your local bookstore.
