That depends on what you are trying to do. There are factory assembly manuals, numbers books, and chassis service manuals. There isn't just one good manual. You will need a custom set depending on your needs.

 I'm in the learning curve on restoration, at some point i want to do a complete restoration, down to bare nuts, i think i'm up to doing the majority of it, but not all of it,, so is there,,  "restoration for dummies" on 1st gen's

William,
go to Classic Industries web site and type in part number "L95" and take a look at that book. I have a copy and it is VERY basic and inexpensive. Only 100 pages and just enough detail and pictures to show you what is involved and what you would need to do. It would be good for a first restoration book but not really detailed enough to do a full high end professional restoration. Just a "Restoration 101" type book. Pictures make all the difference.

Hope this helps,

-Mark.

Also, consider buying a catalog from AMK in Winchester, VA. Ten bucks. They cross reference the GM part numbers from the Assembly Manual for nuts, bolts, washers and other fasteners. Invaluable in a restoration! (Learned this from Ken Lucas of Lucas Restorations.)
