    Found!? (2009)

    OK the deal is done. I have seen and purchased my old Jetfire back!! Should have it in the driveway next Sunday. The car is much worse than I thought. The garage roof had a 12" hole over the windshield. All the die cast trim needs to be replaced. Interior better than expected. All Jetfire parts under the hood in place. Engine turned over by hand. No keys or brakes!! I will attach a few photos.

    We put some paint on the windshield area. Will start working on the right inner fender in the next few days.

    I just thought I would post a photo of the Oldsmobile Turbo Rocket Fluid. You need this to make the whole thing work correctly.

    I am still in need of any mint trim parts. Any leads will be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Been working on the 69 W30 project this summer. Just a little late was going to put the 63 Jetfire in the garage when Sandy came along. We are way better off than some but this is a real bummer. Dent in the roof at the windshield. Not sure how bad but bent the frame. I will post more tonight.

    OK! Sandy is gone!!!
    My Insurance Co totaled the car. I was able to keep the car by buying it back. I was happy with the settlement from Hagerty and they were very nice to work with! WTony had some time so the car is in the body shop. The roof is repaired and stripped, and primed. I have a few photos to post more to come.

    Just got the car back from WTony. I will get more photos when I have time over the weekend. Now it is really starting to take shape. Will be working on the doors next.

    Not made too much progress but still finding parts. WTony patched the floor and welded the 4-speed hump in. Dad and I converted the car from auto and bolted the hump in 1982. WTony also installed a new rocker panel. Still more to go but we are closer. Back to working on the W30. I also found a photo of my dad guiding the 215 with the 4 speed trans attached.

    Great progress Ken!

    You keep showing these pics and WTony will be backed up for years!

    If you still need parts for the Jetfire, try Jim Noel in MN. He is an OCA member and knows these cars inside out. He built a gorgeous '63 Jetfire station wagon back in the 80's. If he does not have the parts you need, he probably knows who does.

    By the way, the project is looking real good! Spring is coming, time to jump on it!

    Glenn,
    Thanks for the encouragement!
    Joe,
    Jim is an old friend from the 80's but thank you!
