Format: Paperback
FIRST OF ALL LET ME SAY THAT I HAVE PURCHASED OTHER BUYERS GUIDE BOOKS BY MBI AND FOUND THEM TO BE INFORMITABLE AND WELL WRITTEN.
THE CHEVELLE BUYERS GUIDE WAS NOT AT ALL LIKE THE GTO BUYERS GUIDE WHICH I HIGHLEY RECOMMEND. THE ABOVE LISTED BOOK ONLY GAVE LIMITED SPECIFICATIONS AND PRODUCTION NUMBERS, AND NO ENGINE OR TRANSMISSION CODES. THE ONLY LIMITED INFORMATION YOU RECEIVE IN THIS BOOK WAS FOR THE "SS" MODEL AND THE "Z16". IF YOU WERE INTERESTED IN OTHER MODELS YOU MAY AS WELL FORGET IT. A BUYERS GUIDE SHOULD BE JUST THAT, A GUIDE FOR POTENTIAL BUYERS ON ALL MODELS. THERE WAS NO BUYERS GUIDE INFORMATION ON WHAT TO LOOK FOR ,AND WHAT NOT,PRODUCTION NUMBERS, CODES,AND VINS.
THIS BOOK WOULD DO FINE IF IT WAS TITLED "THE CHEVELLE Z16 AND BIG BLOCK SS".....BUT NOT BUYERS GUIDE....I FOUND THIS BOOK TO BE OF NO USE TO A PROSPECTIVE BUYER.
