    I believe they should be spring ring, that strap looks correct. If you find another, I need one too.

    These cars only weigh 2700 lbs, There is really not reason to go 5 lug. Plenty of nice wheels. If you rebuild the brakes properly, the stock drums are more then sufficient. I never had a need for disc brakes. These are rare cars and imho should be left stock

    Where were the floor pans modified for the 4 speed trans tunnel? Was it at Fisher Body or at Oldsmobile? Hard to believe Fisher would do the trans tunnel mod that way.

    Eric, thanks for posting that tag! That’s the 98th Jetfire made! Anyone ever see a lower number?
    Save that car, it may be the earliest ever found.

    Jim, my 62 had air conditioning and no stamps at all in the ACC line.
    But a/c could be dealer installed and no way to tell. The assembly line manual outlines the installation, but it would take a lot of work at the dealer to install it.

    I got mine from SMS. It’s Naugahyde, original material and tough. Mine had the logo of the Naugahyde “creature” on the back side.

    I just checked the home page that says April 20 was when they were introduced, So if your car is 04B, that’s April, 2nd week for production. Looks like you have one of the first ones so you will have to restore it and not use it for parts! Curious to see how low the body number is.

    Eric, that’s a very early Jetfire. I believe April was the first month of production. Whats the body number on the tag, your photo doesn’t show it all?
    Red Jetfire, white roof, what are the odds

    It will make no difference.
