I don’t have the answer to that question for sure. The one I looked at was mounted in what I was told was a 61 F85 hood. I know it was very similar to the 62 hood and I remember a similar latch assembly. The price on it was $65. and at the time it was more than I could afford to spend and I wasn’t 100%sure it would fit my 62. It looked like it could have been something that might have been put on a few cars to promote the new engine, just a guess. It didn’t look like a cob job. Maybe the Shaudys would have more info. It makes more sense if it were on a 62 Jetfire to show the turbocharger.
