1946-53 American Automotive Tech Sheets

These high quality reproduction body/frame technical sheets show exploded views of all major body parts and the corresponding OEM part numbers (typically left side - the right side numbers are similar). In addition there's the electrical wiring diagram(s), steering geometry information and frame dimensions. You receive typically 8 - 14 scanned pages in pdf format of incredible concise information. The advantages to receiving a softcopy are that you can print out multiple copies when a copy gets dirty while working on your car (which will happen!). And you can zoom in to see the details, which is particularily helpful when looking at the wiring diagrams.

This hard to find information is a must have for those restoring an older vehicle as it shows how the parts go together and what the name and part numbers are. Invaluable information when you are missing parts or have taken something apart years ago and can't remember how it went back together. The OEM part numbers are great for verifying that NOS part is indeed the part that you need.

The tech sheets are now free!

Note 1: Electrical wiring diagrams are only available for 1946-49 models only
