Chevrolet by the Numbers is the only authoritative reference for identifying and verifying the correct Chevrolet parts, by casting number, for your exact model.Other books rely on secondhand information or out-of-date part numbers. Author Alan Colvin documented every casting number for every Chevrolet V-8 engine and drivetrain part from 1955 through 1975, using original source material in Chevrolet's archives, including engineering blueprints, technical service bulletins, and build sheets. He interviewed the original manufacturers and engineers and brings you fascinating stories of parts development from behind the factory gates. Most of this information has never before been seen in public!
This book covers all 1955-1959 passenger cars, including: Series 150, Series 210, Bel Air, Impala, Corvette, and El Camino. Engines covered include the 265, 283, and 348.
