BOOKS AND PRINT

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

  1. 1956 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 1956. These can be pretty expensive.
