Hey all,

I picked up a 1983 GMC Caballero a few weeks back.

I was browsing the forums and saw someone mention that knowledge about these Elky/Caballero's is out there but can be hard to find in a single location.
I thought it might be a good idea to pick up a manual for the truck since I know I'll be needing to work on a laundry list of small things at the very least.

I purchased a Haynes manual but after looking on eBay came across something neat.
I was able to pick up an original 1983 GMC Caballero Service Manual:
Tin Font Rectangle Material property Gas


As well as a set of 4 1983 GMC Trucks shop manuals:
Rectangle Font Red Material property Handwriting


As soon as I opened the box my living room smelled like a shop. These have definitely been sitting on a shelf in some shop somewhere for the past 40 years.

Between the Haynes Manual, the original service manual, and these shop manuals I think I should be covered.
Thought I'd share!

Good info! Thanks.

Sadly the Chevrolet Interchangeable Parts Catalog is not as affordable as the other manuals I've picked up so far.
It's ~$200 on eBay at the moment. I'll keep my eye out and hopefully find a better deal on it in the future.
