1959 Truck Operator's Manual

Hi All,

The 1959 Truck Operator's Manual is now online thanks to Doubledick for sending it my way.

This is part of the Old Online Chevy Manuals

Hey Don,

One of the members of this forum, "Grouch" did some really good research on the copyrights issue. He placed the "Oldsmobile 1949 Shop Manual 6 and 8" online and on the main page is a listing of links dealing with copyright rules. These pretty much corresponds to info I checked into several years ago. Most anything before 1963 is open game. As for your GMC Manual, if the copyright was not renewed, then it is "in the public domain. All the manuals I post are 1960 or before thus staying away from any possible infringements. Also, after 1960, the technology in our vehicles was advancing meaning there was a lot more data which would take several lifetimes to scan, format and upload online.

Cheers!
