1959-60 Cadillac Shop Manual

A 1959 Cadillac Shop Manual and/or a 1960 Cadillac shop manual is a must whether for you or your trusted mechanic. For the 1959 and 1960 Cadillac the shop manuals are available as originals or reproductions. They can be found in print or on CD. E-bay is a good place to find many for sale. For a 1960 Cadillac you need both manuals.

In addition, I have found a parts book useful in tracking down the parts or part numbers. These can be helpful in searching for NOS parts or replacements.
