'66 Caravel Owners Manual

Does anyone have an owners manual they would be willing to send as a PDF? I'm having no luck finding one online. I'd like to see the electrical and plumbing diagrams. I found an old post that referenced a website that was supposed to have the manual but it was no longer available.

Thanks!

Hi Melody Ranch, I just bought a 1965 Caravel this weekend. It needs some work and I was wondering if you could send me a PDF file for it. It would be much appreciated.

Hey Tom, thanks so much for sending the manual. Actually, both Manuals were appreciated. One was from the Humphrey Bogart movie Treasure of the Sierra Madre wasn't it?
How long have you had a Caravel? I bought mine from a man who bought it new in 1965.
I understand axels are a problem with the Caravels.
Again, thank you very much. Now the fun begins!

I have had it for about 20 years. I was ready to buy one from a local doctor who had purchased it new when one of our mechanics pulled in towing his Caravel. He related that he needed to sell it due to his growing family. He wanted a third of what the other one was so I bought it. Other than replacing the axles I have not done any major work until recently. Uwe and I made a deal to replace the refrigerator and in the process discovered that the floor was too rotten to install it. So it has been a work in progress for too long, but slowly coming together. I am off for a little test run to the races at Mazda Raceway in Monterrey this weekend to see what works and what else I need to do.

Hi-

I just found this post. Would you be able to send me a copy, too? We have a '66, but at least it might be a start.

Thanks,
gabbieg
