Let’s Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Jetfire!


On April 20, 1962 Oldsmobile introduced the FIRST AMERICAN PRODUCTION version of the Jetfire, a car powered by a turbocharged, fluid injected aluminum V8 engine. The turbo charger boosts the output of the 215 c.i. engine by 15% to 215 horsepower (“one horse per cube”). This rare car was only built in 1962 and 1963, and there are probably less than 100 driveable Jetfires in existence today.
