That tag is not from your car. Unless someone cut the roof off and made it a convertible.The tag says it’s a Hard Top. Someone parted out a Jetfire and put it all on a convertible.The factory would never use the wrong body style code for production. It can’t work that way. If it was a “factory convertible” Jetfire, the tag would still have a 3167 code. There is nothing on a tag that says its a Jetfire. It’s just that the Jetfire was the only model available in Hardtop body #3147 form.
it decodes like this:
06D= build date June,4th week
Style 62-3147= 1962 body style 2 door HARDTOP COUPE, convertible is 3167
Body LA 2157= built in Lansing, 2157th Jetfire coupe made
Trim 975=Red interior
Paint V-V= Upper and lower color Holiday Red
Acc S-384=accessory codes
