2 min read

This 7 days we received an electronic mail from 1 of our viewers, Stephen, asking exclusively about house owners manuals for unusual aged cars!

 Hey Cary,


I have a unusual previous car that did not appear with an owner’s manual or any kind of info. There is details I have observed on the internet but I genuinely want to have the initial book to have in my hand. Any suggestions wherever there is a good position to appear for 1?

Thank you.


Fantastic concern, Stephen! This occurs to be a obstacle I have individually confronted a lot of instances. Often, dependent on the specific car you have, it can be a serious chore to discover an owner’s guide.

I would start out by seeking up teams/golf equipment that focus on your certain car or truck both by Google or social media. Emailing groups can from time to time issue you in the direction of somebody who collects owner’s manuals, or a person may just have an strategy of where to find a single!

If you sense lucky, eBay!

I find that if your car is from across the oceans, check out eBay in other nations! Normally, something will pop up, and fingers crossed the seller will ship it more than to you. If you experience inclined, you can also scour other automotive classifieds from all around the earth on the web. Often it can be a uncomplicated search, but it normally leads to an journey in e-mail.

In the meantime, whilst you look for for an original actual physical handbook, I would advise some deep diving on-line in the manual reproduction section. It is not uncommon to come across a website where by you can access PDF scanned unique manuals for your car or truck. Whilst these can not give you with the bodily duplicate you are wanting for, I located they present me with a fantastic reference point that retains me more than right until I locate an first for myself.


The best advice I can give you is do not give up. With tolerance, one thing will sooner or later pop up, and it is always fulfilling to ultimately keep your vehicle’s first owner’s handbook in your fingers.

If you do not head, remember to email me a picture when you locate it. Owner’s Manuals fascinate me.

Until eventually then, greatest of luck and satisfied hunting!

I would also like to extend a enormous thank you for the e-mails I have been acquiring. Be sure to continue to keep inquiring me queries. I have been savoring digging deep and acquiring the responses to your toughest inquiries.

Be sure to mail me an email at [email protected] with all inquiries you may possibly have.
