Tri-Five Chevrolet Data and ID Guide 1955 1956 1957 is a valuable tool for anyone working or restoring these cars. Packed with facts, option codes, wonderful pictures, production numbers, and quite a bit of history as well. Another solid resource from CarTech books. Patrick Hill filled this pocket book with about as much information as could be desired. ( )

This is the most informative book on the details and minutiae of tri-five Chevys. The book is divided into three chapters, one chapter for each year Chevy it covers. Each chapter contains background information on the creation of the car, available options, lots of great pictures, VIN information and decoding, paint colors and combinations, interior options, engine serial numbers and information, casting numbers, unique cars Chevy made in those years, and fun trivia.

This is not a coffee table book, despite the good pictures and interesting background history and trivia. It is an information manual first and foremost, and if it is purchased for any other reason then the buyer will likely be disappointed. That said, for an information manual it is laid out in a simple, easy-to-read, and even entertaining manner, and I highly recommend it. While I am not able to double-check much of the numbers and information it contains, and therefor cannot vouch for its accuracy, the author seems well informed and appears to have done his research. One of the only negative comments I have is that the book is advertised everywhere as pocket-sized, but it is too large to fit in most pockets. Four stars. ( )

The Tri-Five Chevrolet Data and Id Guide 1955, 1956, 1957 is a must have for an avid Chevy collector. This softcover 191 page book is broken down into three sections to detail each year individually. Each section goes into detail with graphs and pictures on codes, colors, VIN, engine, serial numbers, etc. A handy book to have if restoring one of these fine old Chevys. ( )

Tri-Five Chevrolet Data and ID Guide 1955, 1956, 1957
by Patrick Hill

I received an early reader copy of this book.
This is a great book, very user friendly. It has a separate section for each year. These sections are organized identically starting with a well-written history and description of that year's designs and many options. This followed by detailed information on so many things. Production numbers, factory paint options, engines, and on and on. The book is also filled with great color photos that clearly illustrate the text's information.
This book will be enjoyable reading for any Chevy enthusiast, and is a must have quick reference for anyone looking to restore their classic Chevrolet. ( )

Fantastic guide. Once again...as I have done in the past for these kind of car books I pass them on to several car enthusiast in my family and friends. Eagerly awaited their thoughts...and most praised Tri-Five Chevrolet. A solid reference with great quality put into creating this guide.

An abundance of data, informative, high quality, great design, excellent photo references. One of the things I look for in these books: Does the author explain things well? How much solid information are we getting so that we don't have to rely on other books for this information. How much knowledge does the author know on what he is representing. Patrick Hill knows his stuff....and that's important when relying on a handbook for the car information you need.

Great quality...chock full of information..to the point and easy to get through. Highly recommend. ( )
