Bill do you remember the color or other info about your Jetfire? I wonder if itís still around. We have a registry with about 15 automatic Jetfires.

----Yes,,,The one I had was a beautiful Turquoise metallic with a white interior and white vinyl top. I sold it at a small vintage car auction in the Chicago suburbs to a dealer from (I think) Missouri. If he was smart, he put it away as it was flawless!...Bill S

Bill,
We have one like that in the registry, it has 14,000 miles but is not running and the engine and sub frame were out. Its in New York but I haven't talked to the guy in a few years. In this photo, the car is on jack stands and the front wheels are just set in place. Do you think this could be your old car?

----It's possible but the color doesn't look quite right. I'll look up a color page on google and see if I can get a handle on the color.....Bill S

Shot of correct hood insulation with factory cut out for the turbo to fit under the hood. Lots of special things were done to the Jetfire on the assembly line. When a rare 4 speed was on the order sheet, the trans tunnel was cut out and a stamped 4 speed tunnel sheet metal piece was welded in.

New auction, this time its a biding auction. If this was a 69 Camaro, with the top engine, these options and special assembly on the line, like a COPO, it would be worth 6 figures.
Only one 4 speed Jetfire has ever crossed an auction block, back in 2017, and it went for 60k. It was a Frankenstein car with no original components.
I may take this to Mecum Monterey in August if it doesn't sell on eBay. All it takes is for one of these to sell for a high number at auction and it will be the next Bronco, 21 window VW bus, etc. The only difference is there are only a couple of these that exist.

My eBay auction got copied and put on a classified ad website US Classifieds4all. Ad is for about half of what I am asking. Don’t fall for it you will lose your money. Looks like the ads are mostly scams on there.
