Okay, guys, I bought this car and trailered it home on Saturday. It is a pretty clean and straight car with the rust out on the right rear wheel well and a smashed in left rear quarter panel, but nothing that can’t be fixed. The amazing thing is that it is complete, with the original turbo on the car. It appears to be an original Utah car and was last registered in 1972. Looks like it has just over 93,000 original miles on it. The date on the turbo is 12-19-62. Check out the pictures and let me know what you think. The guy I bought it from is a professional auto restorer and was working for one of the most well-known auto collectors here in Utah, who passed away recently, which led to liquidating his collection. The Jetfire was on the list to restore, but the heirs decided they didn’t want to continue with that and decided to sell it. Anyway, let me know what you think.
