This aircraft was in storage from the 60"s until it was restored in the Late 90"s. I have all logbooks since the restoration as well as the FAA (CAA) documentation CD with all historical maintenance records. The aircraft has always been hangared. It is currently based at KHQU and will be sold with a fresh annual inspection. Photos of logbooks can be provided upon request. This aircraft is Light Sport eligible. I purchased the aircraft in 2008 in Detroit and flew it to Georgia, no problems. I fly professionally and just don"t fly it that much anymore. I welcome any calls with questions or offers. 7zero6 79nine sixone81.
The only issues: the parking brake doesnt work (never has since i"ve owned it), left wing was pushed into a hose reel in the hangar - it was repaired and doped/primered but never painted (about 4x4 patch pictured), left wing bow had a fabric repair patch also a few scuffs on the right wing bow - both before I purchased it , a few places the paint has come off or become discolored but in an 8/10 condition.
