This assembly manual is unlike anything you've ever seen. This Fisher body plant assembly manual shows how metal body parts are welded together - it shows the location of hundreds of welds. It’s helpful for hidden welds holding up parts you might need to remove and replace. If you’re replacing parts due to rust, you’ll find out how to replace mounting parts that have rusted away. The book is particularly useful if the car has had damage from a wreck. You learn the specific type of weld (stitch, gas, seam, etc.) that was originally used in each location.

  • Front End: Dash panel (panel behind dash), dash, wire clips, firewall, windshield frame, convertible top latch supports
  • Doors: outside and inside metal, glass supports, window mechanisms, hinge supports
  • Rear quarter panels: inner and outer panels, rear quarter panel attachment to seat back, window supports, folding top supports and compartment, locks, arm rest supports, wiring clips
  • Roof: drip rail, lamp supports, attachment to rear quarter
  • Trunk: lid, anchor plates for trunk hinges - welded mounting points
  • seat supports
  • floor pan crossbars, rocker panels, and more
  • front, center, and rear pillars

    The book covers cars from the firewall back; the hood and front fenders are not covered (because these were assembled at the chassis assembly plant and not the Fisher body plant). The book was originally published in 1942 and then updated in '46. Since '47 and '48 were nearly identical, the same book continued to be used. Please see the sample page image. All pages are watermarked with a background image like the sample page. Buy now to own this hard-to-find manual.
