Haynes publishing was started in 1960 in Somerset, England, and has since expanded to have a North American, with a base of operations that is located in Los Angeles, California. John Haynes, the original founder of Haynes publishing, wrote and published his first book on how to build an Austin 7 Special while he was still attending school in 1956. This manual set the stage for many of the specialized repair and rebuild manuals that Haynes would later publish. Based on the teardown and rebuild of actual vehicles, coupled with extensive use of step-by-step photos, these first few manuals set the standard for many generations of Haynes manuals that would follow.
The key factor that sets Haynes Manuals apart from the rest is the attention to detail that goes into the production of each manual. Each edition is compiled using hands-on experience that is based on a complete Mustang teardown, which is the step-by-step procedure of dismantling the vehicle part-by-part, bolt-by-bolt. The completion of each Mustang manual takes approximately thirty man-weeks, with Haynes authors working in smaller teams to shorten the production time and avoid fatigue during the difficult process. Hundreds of photographs accompany each manual’s step-by-step instructions. Each Mustang instruction manual has been written from the experiences of Haynes’ own expert employees, using only a basic set of tools, and has been presented in a style that any Mustang owner can be able to follow, even a novice. The average Mustang owner who accomplishes their own projects with the help of these books can save themselves a great deal of time and money, not to mention feeling proud of the job that they themselves have accomplished, with the help of a Haynes instruction manual.
Haynes has completed over 2,000 teardowns, and as a result they are able to offer over 500 different manuals in the United States for a large number of makes and models, including many years of the Ford Mustang. There is an extensive selection of auto repair books, written in both English and Spanish, making them a great resource for any owner to have.
