I understand that for the ’63 Jetfire’s, some were painted black and some were body color, under the hood. I have not seen or heard of a ’62 with black, I think all were body color. For some time I thought that the black under hood painted cars all came from one build site but you have disproven that thought of mine now. A real bonus to the ’63’s is that the seat cover replacements are available, no custom cut & sew$$.
