It would not be a surprise that the old glass replacement books would miss that the 1962 Jetfire was introduced some 7 months after the 1962 model year started, April 19,1962. If their books were not updated to include the late entry of the Jetfires, then the 1963 book/listing would be all they have to go on.
Yes, the 1962 and 1963 glue in windshields for Jetfires are the same. Oldsmobile didn’t cover anything on 1962 Jetfire in their service or parts books. They did come out with a Jetfire supplement manual in June of 1962, 4-Speed Synchromesh Transmission supplement in May of 1962 and a Power Brake supplement in May of 1962, all 8 to 9 months after the model year introduction. My 1962 Oldsmobile Parts & Accessories Catalog is effective starting September 1961 and has no mention of Jetfire, I have to go to the 1963 Parts book for Jetfire info. Sounds like the glass suppliers are the same.
