Don’t worry in the late 70’s my mother bought a 62 Jetfire without the turbo on it. So I was restoring the rusted out convertible at the time and figured it would be a good idea to strip the Jetfire of its neat interior and hood for my convertible and scrap the rest of it. After all if the top goes down the price goes up, right? Well that didn’t work out as planed. So now I have convertible with a neat Jetfire hood and console, that has replaced floors and 10 ponds of bondo throughout the body. I parked it in 1986 do to low oil pressure after rebuilding the motor twice, I drove it and constantly work on it for almost 10 years. It still setting in my carport with a cover on it. I don’t want to sale it yet, since I went to kindergarten in it. I love these cars but they really have a lot of problems. Before the internet all you had was Hemmings to find parts.
