There’s some confusion in these posts.

For 1962 and 63, Olds offered the F85, F85 Deluxe, Cutlass, and Jetfire in the Y-body line and the Dynamic 88, Super 88, and Starfire in the B-body line.

For 1964, Olds offered the F85, F85 Deluxe, Cutlass, and 442 in the A-body line and the Jetstar 88, Dynamic 88, Super 88, Jetstar I, and Starfire in the B-body line.

The 1964 nomenclature has been confusing since the Jetstar 88 was a low-rent model with the 330 motor and small brakes, whereas the Jetstar I was a high-end model slotted just below the Starfire. And to confuse the issue even more, the naturally aspirated 330 used in the Jetstar 88 was called the “Jetfire” engine.
