Any recommendations for useful Corvette C1 books

Postby mwizz » Mon Jan 16, 2012 8:37 pm

Can anyone recommend which Corvette book/s would be the best to buy that cover issues such as a 1958 restoration project and/or early Corvette specs etc

For the 68 i have the AIM which is fantastic. Also just got the shop service manual and fisher body manual on cd from Paragon on sale and they look great too. I'm sure there are 58 versions of all of those.

Assembly Instruction Manual
Speed has never killed anyone,
Suddenly becoming stationary that's what gets you.

You could also check out the NCRS shop for ideas. There's a "1958-1960 Corvette Restoration Handbook" listed there that's pricey but probably what you are after. http://www.ncrs.org/shop/index.php?main ... &cPath=1_4

I have a 260 page 61 corvette assembly instruction manual .
Its in a folder and was reproduced in 1977 by the looks of it.
Supplied by Corvette Central.

I then have the whole thing again from Chevrolet in a folder.

Let me know if you want more info to track one of these down
