Original Technical Publications

The days of hunting around Autojumbles for grubby and damaged workshop manuals, parts lists and owner manuals are over! At least they are if you own one of the many classic cars covered in the range of Original Technical Publications compilations (OTPs) now offered on the OTP website.


For each model, the OTP reflects the array of official technical publications provided by the manufacturer during the production life of the vehicle and beyond. Most titles include at least the relevant Parts Catalogues, Workshop Manuals and Driver’s Handbooks, but there may be more – for example, the Series I (1948-58) Land Rover OTP includes three Parts catalogues, two workshop manuals, nine Instruction Manuals, a Technical Handbook for Military Land Rovers and even a Test Report from the British Society for Research in Agricultural Engineering!

Model coverage is also extremely comprehensive – the early Jaguar OTP extends from the 1936 ‘SS’ saloons to the 1958-61 Mk IX, other titles span the entire Jaguar family up to 2011, even including the rare XJ220 supercar. Daimler models from the early 1950s onwards are also featured. Other Heritage marques covered include Austin, Austin Healey, MG, Mini, Morris, Rover SD1, Triumph as well as eleven titles covering Volvo's classic models from 1927 to 1998.
