fisher body service manual

I've been looking for a 1963 Fisher Body service manual ever since I saw one for 1966. Does it exist?

If so, can some one point me to where I may acquire one?

Thanks.

I think you need two. The one for a 1961 body and the supplement that listed the changes in the body for 1963 (I may be off on the 1961 year as I am going from memory, could be 1960 or 1962 plus the supplement).

Dave,

That is true about the SHOP manual(s). I have both. I also have the '63 Assembly Manual.

I've attached a screen shot of the first page of the 1966 version of the manual I am seeking so someone may (hopefully) recognize it. I would have attached the entire pdf of the manual but I kept getting an error message. The manual I'm seeking is different from the '66 shop manual and the '66 Assembly manual (although some of the data overlaps).

Two issues.

First the GM manuals are all still copyrighted, and as such can not be shared on line without our (The Team boards) being libel. GM won't sue you as a small fry (minnow) because your pockets are not deep enough to make it worth their while, but as soon as a company gets involved the sharks start to swarm.

Second the manuals have overlap because they are all used by GM employees to do their job, it is just that they have different jobs to do. The assembly manual is of primary interest to assembly line workers; the service manuals are used by line mechanics; and the Fisher Body manual is used in the body shops to repair collision damage.

I always expected to have to purchase the manual. My problem is I can't find any vendor that even lists it as existing, or for sale but out of stock.

If the manual is not for sale anywhere, nor does it exist, I'll stop looking.

Thanks for replying.

It existed once. It will come up again on line for sale as a used paper manual since no one seems to have licensed a copy from GM.

I check estate sales in the paper for former mechanics that have gone on to that grease pit in the sky. There are a lot of retires in my area that are dying to retire to Florida, and bring their shop tools and old manuals with them.
