it appears that it has the correct manifolds, capped off where it would have a pipe to the turbo. correct crossflow radiator, and trim like eric said. other than that idk. let me know what you guys think

The correct valve covers are there and the correct exhaust manifold are there. Those are some of the hardest parts to find. I can’t tell from these pictures but I wonder if the fluid tank is still on the driver side inner fender? That is the other hard part to find. Everything else is not that hard to find. I think I remember that you have a carburetor maybe? If it were closer, I would already have it in my garage.October 25, 2015 at 8:08 am #11321
With being vinyl top car, check the window frames for rust. I know it is a California car but if water sit in there for a long time…
Good luckOctober 25, 2015 at 2:06 pm #11323
Yeah I know all to well about window channel rust. The tank is gone, in another picture there is a big air horn mounted where the tank should be. And yes I do have a carb, I unfortunately missed out on a turbo and carb recently that was local to meOctober 25, 2015 at 2:10 pm #11324
In another picture it shows the correct boost gauge in the console as wellOctober 25, 2015 at 3:54 pm #11326
The tank for sure will be the hardest part to find for this car. That exhaust manifold and valve covers are a major plus.October 25, 2015 at 4:55 pm #11327
What’s different about the valve covers? He said he can’t get in the trunk so I could get lucky and find some jetfire parts in thereOctober 25, 2015 at 9:48 pm #11328
The turbo oil return goes into the passenger cover and the PCV hole in on the driver side. I can’t remember all the differences are off hand. Been a while since I seen a non turbo valve cover.October 26, 2015 at 9:33 pm #11329
I forgot to ask, based off the condition it appears to be and the missing parts is this a fair price?October 26, 2015 at 10:00 pm #11330
If the body and under side is as solid as it looks I would say he is just right. I would try for less but I don’t think you will be hurt at that price. Like I said above. If it were closer I would already own it.. if it is that solid. I just picked up a factory 4 speed Jetfire that is much worse than this one as far as the body goes but mine has all the turbo still there. I paid over $2K more for it. I would bet that if I didn’t buy the 4 speed car I would have had this one shipped here.
