This manual contains complete service information for all 1955 Ford Passenger Cars and the new Ford Thunderbird. Step-by-step procedures for trouble shooting, cleaning and inspecting, repairing, and re-placing the various parts, assemblies, and systems on these vehicles are presented here. This manual also contains maintenance and lubrication data as well as a tabulation of service specifications. Detailed illustrations of many of the service operations are given here. Disassembled views of the principal units show the various parts in the order of their disassembly or assembly. In many cases, a glance at these illustrations will tell you all you need to know about how the parts go together.
This product is produced in Adobe Reader (pdf) format to retain the exact look and feel of the original manual. Simply scroll through the pages and sections like reading a normal printed manual. In addition, unlike a printed version, each page can be printed (or reprinted, if damaged in the garage), zoom in to over 1200% to see the exact details, and you can search for keywords.
This 6000+ page manual is the original manual used by Ford technicians in the 60′s and 70′s to identify the correct service part for Ford cars. It contains a comprehensive list of part numbers, diagrams, illustrations, cross-references, and other valuable information necessary for any restoration project.
This is not the same as a “Shop Manual”. A shop manual is very useful, but simply does not provide the details necessary for most restorations. For example, a shop manual does not provide the full part numbers (i.e. C5ZZ-1007-B), when a part changed, nor diagrams specific to your model car. Instead, it contains partial numbers and only a handful of general illustrations (most may not even be for your model car).
