This is a dealer-only album that salespeople used. You can use this book to restore your vehicle to its historic best, upgrade with factory options, or to authenticate equipment already installed. You will find the following information in this book:
Data or Facts -- the most detailed information on standard and optional equipment, combinations of equipment, specifications, dimensions, accessories, and trim packages. You will find out the dealer's "inside information" that is far more detailed than a sales brochure. You'll find detailed descriptions of interior and exterior styling as well as mechanical and safety features with explanations of how the vehicle changed for 1973. You'll see a section describing each model, with an illustration, specifications, standard equipment, and optional equipment. You will find detailed specifications for engine, transmission, frames, springs, axles, wheels & tires, brakes, steering, and bodies / cabs as well as systems like cooling, lubrication, fuel, exhaust, ignition, and electrical. You'll also find truck data like trailering information, payload, brake specifications, and chassis specifications.
Color and upholstery -- examples of the paint and upholstery. Each dealership usually had only one or two copies of this valuable book, so these albums are much rarer than most other types of literature. However, they are often the only source for hard-to-find upholstery swatches - these are actual fabric samples and not printed images. Includes upholstery ONLY for C/K pickup, blazer, Suburban, and G Van. Includes listings for exterior/interior color combinations for all models as well as exterior paint chips.
A note on the binders: this book comes in a few different binders, some are blue and some are green. Buy now to be one of the few collectors to own this privileged information.
