Assembly Manuals

I'm getting an assembly manual for my '62 Monza. Question: are these like the shop manuals where you need the previous year for full coverage, or will it be sufficient to just purchase the book for my year. Thanks for any input.

He said "assembly manual", not chassis shop manual which used supplements for some years.

The assembly manual has a lot of detail and AFAIK they were published in full for each year, no supplements.

Thanks for the replies. Will stick with the one for my year. At least it's cheaper that way!

Assembly manuals are the "instructions" to the people on the assembly line, instructing them how the car "should" be assembled, however, not all the various assembly plants followed the manual. The best part of the assembly manual, is that it will give you the specific part number for the various parts, and with this number, you many times can cross reference that part to other years, and others cars within the brand (Chevrolet), and even sometimes, the part will also fit other brands of the GM car lineup. It will also help you to knowing what might be installed on a particular car after a certain production date. It is a great resource if you are interested in restoring your car to "as built" condition.

Good information and true - On LM's I've seen many variations for the location of the heater hose supports over the years.
