    Paying It Forward

    I have a 1987 / 1988 Service Information Manual (factory service manual) that my mechanic located for me. Condition is good. I will send it, at no charge - including shipping, to the first 87 or 88 Allante owner that PM's me. Continental U.S., 87 or 88 Allante owner only.

    I have an 88. I paid $12.99 for a manual, I think it was a good deal! Pass it on, pay it forward, good for you!

    $12.99 is a steal!
    it's the official factory service manual?

    Re: Paying It Forward

    how relevant will an 88 service manual be to an 89? didnt they switch to the 4.5 in 89? if so i imagine it would be pretty useless...
    dang

    Re: Paying It Forward

    I would go for it but when my gf's dad gave me the car, he included that manual too. I'd toss it up on ebay if you don't hear anything back in a few more days.....

    It's spring and this manual is still available.

    BTW, my mechanic has a 93 polo green / beige Allante with 77K miles that he has listed for $12K. I haven't stopped to look at the car, but to me it would have to be perfect to justify that price.

    Hi.

    I just bought a 1987 Allante yesterday, and find that I am in desperate need for a shop manual.

    I am a new member here, so I could not PM you.

    If your offer still stands, I would be very grateful for your generosity.

    Interesting that this car is a factory hardtop VIN (PU100107) with no mention of the hardtop being available with the car and only the soft top is shown in the pictures. It would be a shame if the hardtop had become separated from the car at some point. I wonder how many times this has occurred?

    Just a thought

    Sorry, been away from this forum for a while. PM sent.

    I hope all has been well with my Allante friends. My wife finished radiation therapy and is cancer free. However, no sun exposure for the next couple years. I was thinking about finding a Lexus SC430, but no verts for us for a while.

    My best wishes go out to you and your wife.

    Thanks for your generosity with the manual, it is truly appreciated.

    Good luck with your SC430 quest.
