Hi Pere,
Yes, your new Jetfire looks great in the picture! I see that it has the same power steering option as mine too. They appear to be twins from the Lansing factory.
Your engine heads (S 050316) are for a 1961 F-85, 2 barrel Rochester carburetor with low compression of 8.75 to 1. The 1961 heads have numbers that started with S 001001, the 1962 heads started with S 100001 and the 1963 heads started with
S 200001. The 1962 and 63 Jetfire turbocharged heads had a T suffix, (S 100001 T) I would assume that your block (HI 29537) has a 1961 berth year also. You can check your white 1962 turbocharged engine and head numbers to see if they are from the 1962 production. I would assume that the white Jetfire engine/heads are correct for the year.
Really cool find but did you really have to walk 1300+ miles? lol
