    Not much. He siad he has not had it that long. Someone brought it to him to work on it but they decided they didn’t want it. He had to apply with the DMV to get the title. Looks like a fair price if it is as solid as the pictures look. It’s not easy but all the turbo stuff can be found to convert back to Turbo.

    He did say he can email better pictures.

    Does it appear to have all the correct trim? How about the correctness of the interior?

    All the trim is correct. The interior is the same as a Cutlass other than the dash emblem and boost gauge and both of those are in the interior picture. Also, the Jetfire is the only hardtop in 62 and from the pictures it looks to be a hardtop so it is a real Jetfire. Just missing the turbo setup. It is an automatic so expect it to need a rebuild.

    I still haven’t heard back from him but hope I do, I’d do a manual swap so I’m not concerned with the auto.

    I got a bunch of pictures I’ll post later for you guys to look at. It appears to have to turbo exhaust manifolds and the cross flow radiator. If you guys think it looks like a good start I’ll prolly get it.
