This car actually came out of a barn. I have always heard of barn finds but was never lucky enough to find one. This car was actually bought by another gentleman who bought it in a package deal with a Polara. He posted this car on fb and I saw it. I own a 63 Skylark so I was familiar with the 215. I didnt know what a Jetfire was but was intrigued by the pics. I went to see the car and bought it on the spot. The story was the owner was sick and sold both cars to help pay for a surgery. The engine was removed and rebuilt due to smoking. I have all the parts to put it back together except radiator and air cleaner. I will send turbo to be rebuilt. The paint and interior is superb for a survivor. The under carriage was undercoated which probably saved the car. There is 1 rust spot behind passenger rear wheel. I plan to have car done by summer if all goes well. Whats the value of these cars as a nice survivor? How many 62s on the road with turbos?
