    Never read them yet... I'm not a big 100% OEM style restoration or Purist type guy, more of a day 2 type gear head....LOL... but I would like to get both the books anyway, add them to my library, it couldn't hurt for reference purposes anyway... thanks for the link

    I have them and they're quite helpful. Bear in mind, there are a few minor errors occasionally (transposed pictures and descriptions etc.) but still worth buying IMHO.

    Now, in 2020, I just ordered the ‘Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth & DeSoto Body of Knowledge’ manual, plus the ‘Dodge & Plymouth ‘62-74 Field Guide’ from Dave Wise @ MMC Detroit. Great & amazing resource information to have on hand, for sure!
    Money well spent in my book! Scott

    Excellent reference material. Especially if you are doing an accurate restoration

    I have the OE book. A lot of information and inexpensive for what you get. A budget item for a no budget hobby.

      I purchased one when I started the restoration on my '68 Charger. As stated earlier, there are a few discrepancies and a few things left out, but overall, a very good information source. I would definitely purchase again.

        KRAMER’s still has some of the DAVIS books that I found ‘accidentally’ while looking for other stuff! I just bought a few focusing on b-body max wedges & race Hemis that they came upon a few weeks back. Very happy with those guides, too!

        I also just bought a factory sealed ‘62 Plymouth service manual for ‘cheap’ on eBay, just last week. Got it yesterday. Very cool manual to have, too!
