    Hello Pere,
    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: jimnoel1@comcast.net

    Hi Pere,
    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, Jim

    Hi Pere,
    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? lol

    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
