1965 Pontiac Manuals

Did Pontiac make two Shop (Chassis) manuals and two Body manuals in 1965? One for the Tempest and GTO line and one for the other cars?

1965 Pontiac Manuals

I can only comment on Canadian publications. In all the years that I have been involved in the hobby I have only seen one Chassis Manual which appears to be the exact copy of the US manual. Only other manual that I have found is the Fisher Body manual which references the whole 1965 GM LINE. The manual only actually refers to the Tempest in the A body Pontiac section, but shows drawings of the GTO and Le Mans just in the section showing external views for badge location.

I ordered a GTO "Body" manual but it was for "B" body cars

I was told by the seller that these were the only manual available. He is still listing it as covering GTO!

Turns out, there a 1965 GTO/Tempest "Body" manual too so I have sent the first one back!
