wanted: 1992 Chevrolet truck owners packet.


I have am grateful to have been given the opportunity to own a truck that my grand father bought new in 1992;
This is in my opinion, and the opinion of a then fifteen year old version of me, the only "cool" truck my grandfather ever bought.

 

I started looking for a better condition owners manual, when I seemed to have stumbled upon the fact that when new, these could have come with a padded vinyl (faux leather) book cover, that held the owners manual as well as some other paperwork that should have accompanied the manual itself.  There are eBay auctions for owners manual like this, and I'd really like to have a nice complete setup for my truck.
Since I have the original owners manual for this truck, another manual of comparable condition isn't of any huge interest to me, it's the other paperwork and the booklet that interest me the most.

I do not know though if this was a USA-only thing, or if maybe dealerships in Canada often didn't give this stuff with a newly purchased truck.

I am not against buying anything any members might have to offer out right, but I would prefer to do some sort of trade assuming i have something to trade that is of interest to members here.
I have some owners manuals and the like that I will show pictures of in the second post.
It is worth noting that it appears as though 1993 trucks used the same padded booklet too.

Attached to this post are some images of items on ebay that are what I am looking for.

Any leads on a NOS owners manual would be greatly appreciated.

here is some trade "bait";

If you notice a re-occuring 'Grand Am' theme, you're not mistaken;
I have a penchant for Grand Am's.

also, incase anyone wants to know about the Saturn owners packet, it's a complete setup from a 1995 model year car - if my memory serves me that was the first, or nearly the first year they were sold here... please correct me if I'm wrong.
It's actually a printed hard cover book - I have never seen another owners manual quite like it.

I'm pretty sure those padded covers were available here as I'm sure I remember seeing them back in the day when I worked at the Chevy dealer. Carl will be able to confirm as he's MUCH older than me and was around the dealership MUCH longer than me.

 Owwwwwwwwwww....

Yes, I am quite sure our trucks came with those as well. Maybe Fake68 will see this, he bought a brand new 92 Silverado at our dealership.

/\ /\ that's an auction I nabbed pictures from;
it's an auction hosted in Michigan.
I have some complete 1992 Pontiac manual stuff not pictured, so the inserts might be the same as what was included with a 1992 Canadian Chevrolet, but I'd appreciate any information/confirmation that anyone might be able to share.
