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 1978. You'll see a section describing each model, with a drawn picture, 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.
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, G Van, and Luv. Includes listings for exterior/interior color combinations for all models.
