Chevrolet by the Numbers: 1970-1975
is the authoritative reference for identifying and verifying the correct
Chevrolet parts, by casting number, for your exact model.
Restoring your Chevrolet to original factory
specifications? You'll find the casting numbers that correspond to
your car's Vehicle Identification Number. With this correct
information you will avoid buying?and being sold?the wrong parts.
Buying a Chevrolet that has been restored?
These numbers will help you determine whether or not the car has been
authentically restored, and whether it's a smart investment.
Searching for factory high-performance parts at
swap meets? "Chevrolet by the Numbers" tells you which parts to look
for, why they are special, and which engines those parts came with.
Other books rely on secondhand information or
out-of-date part numbers. Author Alan Colvin documented casting numbers
for Chevrolet V-8 engine and drivetrain parts 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 1970-1975 passenger cars, including: Chevelle, Camaro, Corvette,
Nova, Bel Air, Monte Carlo, Impala, and El Camino. Engines covered
include the 262, 307, 350, 400, 402, and 454. If you absolutely want to
know the original parts for your Chevrolet - not what interchanges or
fits, but the correct part that came with your car when it was assembled
- "Chevrolet by the Numbers" has the answer.
