Hi All,

Thanks to Charles M. ("WagonMan") the 1955 Fisher Body Trim Manual for Chevrolet is now online.
http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/fisher/1955A/index.html

Charles loaned me his manual about two months ago and while getting it scanned. This manual has traveled with me from Texas to Haiti, back to Alabama and twice to southern Mexico. So this took a little while to get to everyone.

Enjoy!


Keith

Wow, I didn't realize my manual would be so well traveled. Hopefully it didn't get too sunburned.
Thanks for tackling this project as it will benefit many Chevy enthusiasts around the world.

Hi: Are there such documents for the 57 and 56?
Thanks, Tom

Hi Tom,

There may be. Seems over the past decade, I keep coming across Chevy publications I didn't know existed. Maybe someone on CT has the 56 & 57 Trim manuals and will want to share.

Cheers!

I never saw one when I picked up the 55 manual but there may be something somewhere out there.
Everything in the 55 can be used for 56 & 57 but the only differences will be the basic design of the seat covers and door panels. The basics are the same for all 3 years.

CCi reproduced the 55 Trim manual in the 80's. Hasn't been available for a long time. I have one. There have not been any 6 or 7 manuals found that I know of.
Great addition. Way to go Keith.

Peace,

Thanks a ton,

Wagonman: Thanks for the added info. Now a triple thanks to Keith because his manual can be used by all TriFivers.
