Thanks guys. Well I won the third edition, April 1969 manual I bid on on ebay. $12.19 plus $3.70 shipping. Hopefully others will see this post and we can see how many editions were actually printed. Really has me curious now. Maybe we can add this information to CRG for reference?

I was going to bid against you, but I let the end time slip past me..  Smiley

Hey Gary, you and I were the only ones to bid on that manual. I had put in a bid for another one earlier and the seller sent me an email saying it was a first edition and the back cover was torn and he would understand if I wanted to retract my bid, so I did. That's when I posted my question here. I find it hard to post against someone I met here or T.C. It's a pretty tough decision to make knowing someone else needs that part too, but on the other hand I needed it, so it would have been WAR man. LOL Smiley

Gary, I found my third edition manual. Send me your address and I will send it to you for inspection. If you like it, we will work out a price.

Hi Buddy,
I sent you a personal message re your manual.   I was noticing your list of cars.. you have some nice ones..  The 99 orange SS sounds sweet (LS1?), as well as the 70 Z28.   All those are cars I've *desired* at one time or another.  I actually owned a '70 Z28 (orange) at one time, but stupidly sold it for lack of garage space.  I should have built my garage more quickly instead!  Smiley

Thanks. I ran out of garage space too! I bought a summer house with a two car garage!

I think I do, but not sure. If I do it's burried somewhere. Do you have a spare?

$12...that's a deal, nice ones usually trade on eBay for 3x-5x that price, well done. Do you have the poly bag for it, an important detail.

I would be interested if a second edition is correct for my 06A. Just curious though why your 05A is a first edition and Edgmontvillage's 04C is a 3rd edition. A couple of weeks difference but backwards? Wondering if the books just go into a bin like situation and the line people just grab one.


My 9B of 68 has first edition, my 4C has the second edition, and my 9A of 69 has third edition.


my original 05A cars owners manuel is first edition. i may have a second edition stored somewhere if you need it.

Gary, I don't have a spare poly bag but there's a really nice one on eBay, item # 400442437592 .
