Looking For A Service Manual - 65 220 S

A few quick questions.

Recenly bought my second 220 - first was a Pontoon which had the service manual and proved to be a huge asset in the rebuild. The 65 220 S fintail recently purchased has no similar manual and I'd like to find one even though it's in much better condition. Is their a retailer for these anyone can recomend researching?

Also I can only find record of the 220 SE, not the S. All of the exterior/interior marking is clearly identified as "220 S" so I'm confused and hoping some of you might be able to shed light on the history.

Lastly, is their a uniform location for the VIN on the 220?

Thanks in advance,
Joshua Ferg

Factory manuals are available on CD-ROM. VINs generally found through the windshield or the driver's door jamb. Not sure what you're confusion is, your car is generally referred to as a 220Sb.

Keep your Ponton manual because the later service manual only adds to the infomation in the earlier Ponton manual.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
