I was restoring my mother’s’ 62 convertible in high school, in the late 70’s & 80’s. I also was tearing apart a running Jetfire ( minus the turbo) to put the neat body and trim parts on the convertible. I swapped the interior, hood, steering wheel and column, and console. The hood is the only outside part I swapped. I do not like the wide trim on the side of the Jetfire. My mother’s car had sat in the junk yard with the top down for seven years. The floors were gone and it had a dent and rust in every panel. So I replaced the floors and used about 50 lbs. of bondo on the body. I might have had you beat for the first Jetfire convertible, if I had swapped everything over. The shell of the Jetfire is setting in the woods on property I don’t own. The grill is the only part left I should go get. I still have the title for it. looking back now, it was a bad idea to tear it apart. I know they did not make a 62 convertible Jetfire. I also believe the cards I saw were made in the 60’s. I’ll let you know if I find another set. Thanks for everyone’s replies.
