Thanks, I will give them a tryMarch 3, 2018 at 8:45 am #13509
The issue with the 0 transaction bidder has been resolved and I have pulled the block. Turns out that he owns one of my former cars and I have talked to him on the phone before.

I had a bidder yesterday that had 0 transactions and just joined eBay yesterday. I have blocked them from bidding again till I know more about them. If you are that person let me know who you are and I will consider unblocking you. I just don’t want to deal with someone that new to eBay if I don’t know them or at least from a same community like this Jetfire forum.
ThanksFebruary 26, 2018 at 5:19 am #13505
I have not done a front suspension rebuild yet on one of these cars but I am sure someone on here will be able to help. I will be doing my first one in the next year so I could use some of the same information. I did pick up some NOS ball joints from eBay a while back. I see aftermarket parts for the front suspension listed on eBay all the time but do not know if any of it is any good or fits correct. I know Kanter offers it but are pricey. Hopefully someone here has a better source.February 25, 2018 at 6:32 pm #13503
Listing is live. I can’t say I am not at least a little nervous about it. No reserve and no opening bidFebruary 25, 2018 at 7:41 am #13502
This car will be on eBay tonight. I feel sure it will bring at least what I need so I am listing it as a no reserve and no opening bid auction. I will let it ride and sell it to the high bidderFebruary 19, 2018 at 1:17 pm #13498
The body is to far gone to restore on this one. I will get a better picture of the cowl tag. I think the transmission has been changed out. I looked and did not see the OX stamped in the tag. Not sure if the engine is original but I would bet it is. The turbo was changed because it is a 63. Has a 2bbl on the engine now.
I did hook up a battery and the engine turns over but no spark. I will clean the points and do a little testing this weekend. Should not take much at all to get this thing fired up.February 18, 2018 at 12:29 pm #13489
The boost gauge is a little crusty. I would bet it don’t work. I have not tested it yet. After getting better light in the exhaust side of the turbo I can see that it is not as new looking inside there as I thought. Just an average used turbo. It does spin and looks like it may have a good foot flange gasket. It feels soft when I poke it with my fingernail.
The hood spears have some pitting but are good enough to be rechromed. One mounting stud is broken but the others all look nice and solid

Engine Head S161183T
Build date on cowl tag 04B. When did they start building these cars? I know they were sold as a late 62 car but when did production start?

I got the trunk open and found more parts. The two parts that stick out most are that I found two of the 63 Jetfire emblems in there. Other than that it is mostly just used trim parts. I also found that the engine is not locked up and it is still the 62 turbo engine. If I get time later today I will see if it will start. The turbo setup that came with the car is not frozen up either. Will not know how good it is till it is apart but from what I can see, the impellers are very nice. They almost look bran new and clean. Not sure what the story is with that. The turbo was painted black.
I will get pictures of all the numbers so if anyone wants to add it to there list of documents. I need to start my own list of documents for number and date comparisons.
