I do restore complete turbocharged induction systems for 1962 and 1963 Jetfire cars. I do not sell a kit or any of the parts used and needed for a Jetfire turbocharger system restoration. I do not know of anyone else offering this service for a Jetfire.
If you would like more information, send me an email to: firstname.lastname@example.orgFebruary 3, 2020 at 12:33 pm #16230
hello my new acquisitionFebruary 3, 2020 at 3:26 pm #16232jensenracing77Participant
Nice! What can you tell us about it? Love to see more pictures. Where did you get it from?February 4, 2020 at 1:50 am #16233
I found it in lichtenstein near switzerland we walked 1304.88 miles to get itFebruary 4, 2020 at 5:36 am #16234
I think that the engine is not original, the turbo was raised, and I am not what model of engine and aboveFebruary 4, 2020 at 9:53 am #16236
Great find! Not easy to find a Jetfire in Europe! Your new Jetfire was made one week before mine and is the same color with a white vinyl top and silver/gray interior. It was made 169 Jetfire’s before mine. I had to look in my garage to be sure mine was still there! lol
Please post a picture of the engine, under the hood.
Thanks for the news, JimFebruary 4, 2020 at 11:00 am #16240
hello jim noel look quickly in your garage you never know lol 🙂 i send you photo engineFebruary 4, 2020 at 11:06 am #16244
yours and beautiful mine and beautiful only on the photoFebruary 4, 2020 at 1:07 pm #16245
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? lolFebruary 4, 2020 at 2:13 pm #16247
thank you for this information I think that this engine comes from a cutlass because the former owner gave me a whole van of part and an engine in addition or I have to check the numbers. and for the mile yes 1300 in 2 days round trip 26 hour driving 🙂 very long
