american motors dealer album

Dealer Albums

Generally, only once a year the AMC Division would sell to each of its dealers one Data Book and Color/ Upholstery Album for the AMCs for that specific model year. These automobile books, collectively called "Dealer Albums" were never given to the general public. Moreover, many were thrown out by thoughtless dealers to make space for the next model year. They are therefore rare, hard to find, and true collector's items. The Data Books are usually profusely illustrated with interior, exterior, options and accessory choices. The Color and Upholstery Albums have swatches of the actual upholstery and paint colors available at that time. They also include the code numbers.

american motors shop service repair manual

Shop Manuals

AMC designed and printed Shop Manuals (also called Service Manuals or Repair Manuals) with the detail and specifics necessary to effectively maintain and repair their automobiles. In some years there is a separate Fisher Body Shop Manual, and in other years the body and chassis sections are combined in one Manual. These Manuals contain the most complete information available for AMCs. There are engine, transmission, drive line, brakes & suspension, electrical, wiring diagrams, exhaust sections and much more. Shop/Service Manuals are essentially "how to fix it" books, with detailed pictures, diagrams, symptoms, tests, etc. If you own a AMC and want to work on it yourself, these are the only Shop/Service Manuals you will need.
