“Parts or Display” Hiller 1951 This auction is for a 1951 Hiller OH 23 Raven UH 12BTrue barn find.
|“Parts or Display”|
True barn find!!! this machine was found at an estate sale in TN where it had been stored since the early 70"s. It had belonged to a 93 year old WWII Veteran who served our country as a paratrooper. After talking to his family I found out that he had purchased this Hiller from a military surplus sale at Arnold Air Force Base which was just a few miles from his farm. He had his pilots license and had intended on getting this Hiller flying again but never did. Now it is time for someone else to enjoy this pice of History.
This auction includes many NOS spare parts including 2 new rotor hubs still in the crates, 1 new drive shaft ,Cooling fan, duct work, exhaust, engine mounts, etc... Also included are 2 military rotor blade boxes and 1 extra set of used blades for parts or repair. Just to clarify!!!! I am not have no experience with any aircraft period. I am not qualified to make any recommendations, assumptions, etc regarding this units condition. I am selling this as a display or parts machine. This Hiller would need a full restoration if it was to ever be used again. I am not sure what parts are needed but I am sure some are missing including the mags and engine shrouds.
