Selling as a lot - I will not separate.

A large collection of Ford passenger car and truck parts manuals / catalogues and various other service related books. Obtained from a dealership many years ago. Ranges from 1949 through 70's. I no longer collect Ford cars so it’s time to pass them on.

For example:

1949 to 1961 Passenger Car Parts Catalogue

1964 Passenger Car Parts Catalogue

1948-1961 Truck Parts Catalogue

1970 Truck Parts Catalogue

As you know these contain exploded views of all the vehicles and all part numbers. Invaluable in determining interchanges. (Forget Hollander).

All come in their original Ford expanding 3 ring hard cover books.

Again all for one price - and for a lot less than I paid for them.

A complete listing of books available to serious inquiries.


Note: I am in Canada - a couple of hours out of Detroit. I will certainly ship them (at your cost) but I suspect the cost would be high??

Gosh. There's 20 plus parts manuals here. Many are 4 to 6 inches thick. A 6 inch version weighs about 15 pounds. Based on that I think you're looking at many boxes.

(road trip??)

Over all there are well over 40 larger pieces of literature and a bunch of thin ones.

I am in London, Ontario.

Thanks for the info John.

When I priced them, I tried to reduce it from what I thought they were worth to and took a whack off for shipping.

Also, thought a few adventurous ones may make the drive. I am a couple of hours out of Detroit (hint).

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: 58Mustang</div><div class="ubbcode-body">If you can get them into the US, they can be shipped USPS book rate which is pretty reasonable. I shipped enough magazines to fill two 4 drawer file cabinets from CA to the east coast for about 300 bucks. </div></div>

By the way you're right the manuals could be shipped media rate in the USA. Your magazines can't. I have mailed large boxes of magazines myself via media but found out recently, that because they have ads in them they can not be sent media. Doesn't matter if they are old magazines with old ads. If they catch you they can charge you whatever higher postal rate they want and if they feel it was done knowingly can even fine you if they are in a bad mood. I have actually got mixed answers from postal clerks but a postmaster gave the ruling of no. They also have the right to open and inspect media mail anywhere along the route if they want.

I would love to have them. I have absolutely no need for them. I can't justify the cost. I

can't justify the shipping expense.

Two suggestions,

1st, consider donation to the AACA Library and Research Center. You could probably find somebody who is going to Hershey who could transport them for free.

2nd, Ebay
