Back in 1967 my grandfather gave my father a 1962 Jetfire. Unfortunately, that car caught on fire and ever since he’s wanted to own another. Last year my Dad was able to track down and purchase a 62 Jetfire, but it needs some work. I don’t have any background in car restoration, and I was wondering if someone would be able to point me in the right direction. My Dad would want to do the restoration himself, but if there are books, original design specs, etc. that would be helpful with this particular restoration I’d like to get that for him. Any information provided would be appreciated. Thank you
Hi, Lots of people here that can give you good advice. Books-start with factory service manual for the F85 1961, get the 1962 supplement which includes the F85 and other Olds models, and get the 1962 Jetfire supplement. All are available on line from various sources at reasonable prices-shop around. I got an original 1961 factory service manual, I believe the originals are better than the repros on pics and diagrams.
