Ask for a Restoration Packet. Have the VIN of the vehicle that you are requesting the info for along w/a mailing address. EST hours are: 8 am- 5:30 pm M-F.

The information you will receive will depend on the year, make and model. When I last used the service, they were sending the info on the exact year, make and model that was requested, i.e. 1981 Chevy Camaro. I’ve read that some info is for all models of a particular year, like shown HERE, and that just the VIN and the year was all that was asked for.

In any event, there's a good amount of technical info.

Mopar has the same thing going.. my dad has the information on it, but I don't know any details
cobalt327 -- I just saw that you had started a wiki article on this; nice. I just worked on it too. Did you have to pay $50 for yours? I'm seeing different reports on the prices. I linked up to the Stovebolt.com article that mentioned a $50 fee as of early 2009, with a note that we need to confirm or verify that. Can we get that pic of yours in the article too?

Anyway, here's the current revision: Chevrolet restoration packets. Please edit/update accordingly.

One of the members at 'Chevy Talk' in the 58-60 forums also mentioned the packets are now $50.00.

Damn----shoulda got mine for the Elkies last year!!
As of fall 2008 I was sent free of charge the resto packet for my 1972 el camino.

Great job, Jon!

The last time I used the service was around 2006, IIRC. I paid nothing for any of the packets I received- I'm in the US, though. I believe Canadian and International requests may have a fee. As said, the fees might have been instated for ALL requests. After the holidays, I plan on contacting them again to update the requirements and fees.

Pontiac used to offer similar info, also included was info on the vehicle's build sheet and other hard to find info- this was always charged for. I looked around and see nothing that indicates this service is still offered by Pontiac, and w/their imminent demise it's not too likely to ever be offered again.
On the Pontiac's....

Pontiac (as far as I know) never offered this info directly, the build sheets and window stickers are available thru http://www.phs-online.com/services.htm
