1965-1972 Ford Master Parts Catalogs
« on: May 13, 2018, 12:09:37 am »
What are these worth? Seems to be 2 volumes. Parts and accessories and body and accessories. Is this a complete set or are there more volumes to make a complete set?  Thanks.   Dave R.

Seems to be a pattern here.

It sounds like you have the version issued in 1973 known as the "Final Revision". There are two volumes. If complete and in decent shape they generally sell for $125 - $175.

I am sure Royce is correct but am wondering how they got it down to 2 volumes.  I have a print version of the MPC and it consumes at least 7 (maybe 8) large 3 ring binders.

Most of the 2 binder sets I've seen have the "parts and accessory's" and "Body and accessories" in one binder (all the actual parts books) , and the Illustration manuals in a second binder. Do you have the illustration manuals or just the parts manuals ?   The illustration manuals seem to disappear more frequently than the regular parts books....

These are on craigslist with about 6 pictures in the ad. One volume seems to be  maybe 5-6" thick with the other about half that thickness. Master parts and accessories in one volume per the text in the for sale ad.
Master body and accessories in the other volume. Appears to be a March, 1974 version. One of the pictures shows a couple of pages of body panel illustrations.
 So, the $300 asking price is way out of line?   Thanks all.    Dave R.

$300.00 would have been reasonable about 20 years ago before someone scanned the whole set and sold them on a CD for less than $50.00, You may still get 300.00 but it may take awhile, most sets sell now for about 1/2 that. If you have the single year manuals that were produced during the model year, they can bring good money, especially 68,69,and 70.

I have a pretty large collection of original aviation manuals and publications from WW2 that I bought in the 1980's... Now 90% of it is available on one CD for about 20.00   :(

I saw the craigslist ad and it caught my attention. I don't own them just interested for maybe a quick flip if the price is right. Thanks everyone.    Dave R.

My Lincoln Mercury Master Parts Catalog is a September 1968 issue with revisions that seem to go up to around 1971. It is in two huge original FOMOCO binders the same size as the Ford MPC Final Revision. One book is Parts and Accessories, the other book is Illustrations, same as the Ford 1975 MPC Final Revision. Together the pair of binders weighs about 40 pounds.
