1972 Cadillac Owner's Manual; 1972 Cadillac Emissions Control Systems  (In Original Plastic Holder)
1 1972 Cadillac Owner's Manual; 1972 Cadillac Emissions Control Systems (In Original Plastic Holder)
Detroit, Michigan Cadillac Motor Car Division 1971 Soft Cover Good-plus in Good-plus Holder 
If you're restoring an old car there's nothing like the original manual to tuck into the glove compartment. Here we have not only the manual, but also the accompanying booklet about the car's emission control systems and their required maintenance and warranty information. Both measure 5" tall by 8" long and fit into their original blue plastic holder. The owner's manual shows some rubbing to blue cover and a small stain to side of textblock which can be seen on the very edge of some pages inside. The emissions book is quite good with a light ring stain from a glass at back Overall, both are still quite respectable. Manual has 84 pages and is illsutrated with black and white photos, charts and drawings. The emissions booklet has 15 pages and is illustrated with drawings.
