Pros: lots of good info. good size print.
Cons: A few more pictures would have been nice. A little pricey.

A very useful source for identifying parts from that era. I would recommend owning it if you are into the numbers aspect of the hobby.

Pros: Good coverage of all 65-69 Chevrolet V8s
Cons: No 6-cyl information - Incorrect info on body plate styles

Excellent coverage of casting information. A must have for the numbers crowd.

Too generic about info on trim tags and incorrectly states that all 65 to 71 trim tags indicate a V8 engine and that no 6-cyl engine identification number are stamped on any trim tag.

Fact: The trim tag style (on Chevelles at least) do not denote a V8 or 6-cyl as the VIN does by the third number (from 65 to 72). I have numerous 65-71 trim tags with styles such as 131xx, 133xx, and 135xx. It doesn't mean a 6-cyl engine (although all examples I have are) but does show there are odd 3rd digit trim tags. I also have several trim tags with an even 3rd digit but VIN has odd 3rd digit.

Pros: Good swap meet material
Cons:

Exellent book for part IDs. I use this at swaps to help with confirmation. Saved me from buying parts that had incorrectly decribed applications.
