Its from the Mike Guarise collection.
I saw it on line and will be a bidder if I could get more information about it. I have requested more info from Mecum. Hate to find it full of body filler.
They only show 1 picture. I wonder who restored the Turbo?
I know the car. My buddy Clint bought the car and sold it. Its had a lot of work done. Jim just rebuilt the turbo and carb. Clint had the car converted to disc brakes and 5 lug wheels. Nice car.
I am the owner, and I’m not sure what you mean by a “modified car”. It is an original Jetfire that, as with most, had its turbo removed long ago. I bought the spare engine to put it back to full Jetfire configuration. Jim Noel did a fabulous job rebuilding the entire turbo setup, and yes, it does have refinished turbo heads. Since the car is in Illinois, and I will not be back from AZ. for a few weeks, I have not been able to get a proper photo shoot done. That will be handled ASAP. Thanks, Mike
To clarify, the modifications made to the car are to add five lug wheels, with front disc brake conversion. It also has a Hurst shifter. With 15″ wheels, radial tires, and the Hurst shifter, the car runs, drives, handles and STOPs so much better than stock, that I consider these to be vast improvements. If that hurts some interest in the car, I understand, but for someone who wants to actually use the car, it’s a vast & very expensive improvement.
