If you want an original factory manual I would scour Ebay. I've bought many manuals for pretty decent prices there. Even if they are a little used I would rather have an original than a copy.

Get the GM shop manual ST 364-81. Also might get the GM assembly manual. This is a manual used by the line techs. to assemble the car. No instructions just exploded veiws of every nut and bolt on the car. The assembly manual is a repo and has been coppied 1000 times so there are some crummy pages but very helpfull at times. You can get the assembly manual at any of the big Corvette suppliers.
