My records of some 154 Jetfires shows 4-1962’s and 15-1963’s with 4 speed manual transmissions still original or in some state of restoration. My records are far from complete and the cars I have listed with 4 speeds may NOT be all factory production cars.
The factory built records show that for 1962 Jetfires, 16 were 3 speed manual, 203 were 4 speed manual and 3,546 were automatics. In 1963 the Jetfire production records show 45 were 3 speed manual, 1,391 were 4 speed manual and 4,406 were automatics.
The most rare survivor is the 3 speed manual of which I only have heard of ONE that still exists! This is a 1963 Jetfire.
