Haynes Classic Reprint Manuals on classic cars

Haynes Owners Workshop Manual - MGAHaynes Owners Workshop Manuals have been published since the 1950s by the British publishing house Haynes, with 200 million books sold by far the largest publisher of car repair manuals in the world. They provide much more information than the owner's handbook supplied by the manufacturer with each new car.

For each Haynes manual a car is first completely disassembled and then reassembled, if possible without the use of special tools. At the same time the various repairs and maintenance works are photographed in detail.

Hundreds of photos and drawings make it easy to follow the short step-by-step instructions. All adjustment data are arranged in clear tables, while clear wiring diagrams are also included.

Due to popular demand and thanks to the availability of digital printing techniques, Haynes now offers the Classic Reprint Manuals series. Each of these workshop manuals is a faithful reprint of the original Haynes Owners Repair Manual. These manuals on car models, that have become classics in the meantime, were out of print for many years.
