Saw the car at Hershey, but did not realize it was the car from this post.  It looked great.  Nice job.

Thanks for the kind comment! It has been fun and we enjoyed Hershey so much. All the people made it worthwhile. Should be back next year with the complete front suspension rebuilt and some other refinements.

Thanks

OK quick update. Updated to 14" tires and white wall.

Looks gorgeous!  Could you tell me where you found those tires? I could use a set for our '64 Chrysler.  Thanks.

Next step in the restoration of the Jetfire. Complete front suspension rebuild. Lots of cleaning and wire brushes. More work but will be worth it.

Congratulations!!

 

What's in the jug under the hood - is it a NOS jug of the special Jetfire injection fluid (can't remember the correct name)?

New update! Installed the correct 10" flywheel, clutch assy, and super T10. The stock t10 had a 2:56 first gear and was hard to get it moving with slipping the clutch. The new trans has a 3:42 first gear. That makes a big difference!! Next install the new replated rear bumper. Still more to do!!
