Its a shop manual.


Also at bottom of page has a Parts and Accessories Catalog with thousands of part numbers and diagrams of the T Bird and all 1957 Ford automobiles.


The catalog provides information that is helpful and can be used in addition to what is contained in the shop manual above. The shop manual does not provide the level of detail required for most restoration projects. One example is that a shop manual does not provide the full OEM part numbers (i.e. C5ZZ-1007-B), when a part number was changed, altered or updated etc.The 1949-59 Ford Parts and Accessories Catalog contains just about every complete part number and clear diagrams specific to your vehicle by year and model.


May check EBAY too, I saw some for other years and there is some repair books, ect.
