1959 PIPER PA-24-250 COMANCHE, 500 SMOH BY VICTOR!, BOTTOM FUSELAGE DAMAGE ONLY, CHEAP !!
THE 250 COMANCHE IS THE ORIGINAL GO FAST FOR CHEAP AIRPLANE !!
155 TO 160 KNOTS. IN A TRUE 4 PLACE AIRPLANE, WITH BAGGAGE SPACE, AND ENOUGH USEFUL LOAD TO CARRY THEM !!
PARTS ARE READILY AVAILABLE AND INEXPENSIVE, SO THEY ARE EASY TO MAINTAIN.
AND THEY ARE A PLEASANT, PREDICTABLE CROSS COUNTRY AIRPLANE, WITH GOOD MANNERS IN TURBULENCE.
BUT, WHEN YOU LAND, IT IS BETTER TO PUT THE LANDING GEAR DOWN !!!
THIS AIRPLANE LANDED NORMALLY AT HIS HOME STRIP, BUT THE PILOT FORGOT TO LOWER THE ELECTRIC GEAR.
SO THERE IS DAMAGE TO THE BELLY.
YOU CAN SEE THE SCRAPES ON THE BELLY SKINS, AFT OF THE NOSE GEAR WELL AND FORWARD OF THE TAILCONE.
LUCKILY, THE PEOPLE SENT OUT TO LIFT THE AIRPLANE BACK UP ONTO ITS GEAR DID A GREAT JOB
WHEN THEY GOT IT LIFTED, THE GEAR CAME DOWN FINE, AND ALL 3 LANDING GEAR ARE UNDAMAGED, INCLUDING THE DOUBLE PUCK DISC BRAKE CALIPERS
THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE ANY DAMAGE TO THIS AIRFRAME EXCEPT THE SCRAPING FROM THE AFT EDGE OF THE NOSE GEAR WELL TO ABOUT THE MID-POINT OF THE BELLY.
THERE IS AN ADF ANTENNA ON THE REAR CABIN BELLY, AND THIS GOT SCRAPED, BUT IT ACTED AS A SKID, SO THE BELLY DAMAGE ITSELF IS MUCH LIGHTER, AND IN A SMALLER AREA, THAN YOU WOULD EXPECT. THE BELLY STROBE ON THE MID AFT BELLY HAS A BROKEN CAP.
THAT"S IT !!
NO WING DAMAGE OR SCRAPING !!
THE CONTROL SURFACES AND TIPS LOOK GOOD!!
NO TAIL DAMAGE, OR TAIL FEATHER DAMAGE !!
THE UPPER CABIN AND FUSELAGE IS NOT HAILED ON, OR DENTED, OR TWEAKED. THE DOOR SHUTS GREAT.
NOW EVEN THOUGH THE AIRFRAME HAS VERY LITTLE DAMAGE FROM THIS INCIDENT IS NOT TO SAY IT LOOKS GREAT.
IF THE PAINT ISN"T ORIGINAL, IT WAS REDONE A LONG TIME AGO IN AN ORIGINAL SCHEME, WITH RED, MAROON AND "LAS VEGAS GOLD" STRIPES, AND THE PAINT IS REALLY BEEN POLISHED AWAY OVER TIME. NOTICE THAT THE SURFACES AND WINGS ARE NOT ALL PATCHED UP AS SOMETIMES HAPPENS, IT JUST LOOKS LIKE TIME HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL ON THE PAINT.
THE OWNER TO GOOD CARE OF THE AIRPLANE MECHANICALLY, AS EVIDENCED BY THE MAINTENANCE RECORDED IN THE LOGS. (WE HAVE ALL LOGS SINCE NEW, 5/1959). THE SAME MECHANIC HAS BEEN DOING MAINTENANCE AND SIGNING OFF ANNUALS FOR 16 YEARS, AND SHOWS GOOD AD COMPLIANCE.
OBVIOUSLY, THE OWNER CARED, IF NOT ABOUT APPEARANCES THAN AT LEAST ABOUT THE ENGINE, AS THE ENGINE WAS OVERHAULED BY ONE OF THE BEST (AND MOST EXPENSIVE) ENGINE SHOPS IN THE COUNTRY, VICTOR !!
NOT THE DISTINCTIVE BLACK PAINT, A VICTOR SIGNATURE.
THIS ENGINE HAD A TOTAL REBUILD 9/20/2005 !!
LESS THAN 500 HOURS SINCE THAT EXCELLENT MAJOR OVERHAUL !!
EVEN WITH THE PROP STRIKE (TO THE 3 BLADE MCCAULEY WITH 1,100 HOURS SINCE NEW), THE ENGINE VALUE IS AS MUCH OR MORE THAN WE ARE ASKING FOR THIS WHOLE PROJECT !!
IF YOU ARE BUILDING ONE OF THE HIGH PERFORMANCE HOMEBUILTS THAT USE THE LYCOMING 6 CYLINDER PARALLEL VALVE ENGINES, HIT THE BUY IT NOW QUICK, BEFORE WE SEPARATE THIS ENGINE AND AIRFRAME AND GET WHAT THE ENGINE IS REALLY WORTH !!
INSIDE, THE SEATS ARE IN ABOUT THE SAME CONDITION AS THE PAINT, BUT THE DASH AND ALL LATE STYLE FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS LOOK VERY NICE. THE OWNER OBVIOUSLY DEMANDED A HIGHER STANDARD FROM A FLYING/PERFORMING STANDARD THAN HE DID FROM HIS COSMETICS
DUAL COLLINS DIGITAL NAVS, COLLINS AUDIO PANEL WITH MARKER BEACONS, KING ADF AND ELECTRONICS INTERNATIONAL FP-5 FUEL TOTALIZER/FUEL FLOW DIGITAL SYSTEM ARE INCLUDED.
THIS IS A SOLID AIRPLANE, WITH A FANTASTIC ENGINE, IN NEED OF MINOR AIRFRAME REPAIR, ENGINE INSPECTION, AND SOME COSMETIC UPDATES.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT YOU CAN BUY IT HERE CHEAP !!
LOCATED AT THE HOLLISTER, CALIFORNIA AIRPORT, WE WILL PAY FOR TIE-DOWN FOR 30 DAYS FROM THE END OF THE AUCTION.
SOLD WITH AIRFRAME, ENGINE AND PROP LOGS, PLUS FAA AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATE AND FAA BILL OF SALE.
THIS IS A WHOLE, REAL AIRPLANE.
BUY IT CHEAP AND FIX IT UP.
GOOD BIDDING !!
AS WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT IS LOCATED IN CRYSTAL,MINNESOTA, NOT…….....HOLLISTER,CA........ ..…….. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PERSONALLY ASSIST WITH THE REPAIR OR MOVING OF THIS AIRPLANE SORRY.
WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT DOES NOT OBTAIN REPAIR ESTIMATES, AS WE DO NOT REPAIR ANY OF OUR AIRPLANES. WE ONLY FACILITATE THE SALE OF REBUILDABLE AIRCRAFT TO THOSE DESIRING TO SAVE MONEY OR HAVE MORE AIRPLANE THAN OTHERWISE POSSIBLE FOR THE MONEY.
REPAIR OF ANY AIRCRAFT WILL DEPEND ON MANY FACTORS, SUCH AS AVAILABILITY OF USED PARTS, LABOR RATE OF THE REPAIR FACILITY, FAMILIARITY WITH THE AIRCRAFT, ETC. AND WE WOULD NEVER PRESUME TO ESTIMATE THIS NUMBER FOR A BUYER. BEWARE OF THOSE WHO OBVIOUSLY GIVE UNREALISTICALLY LOW "ESTIMATES" FOR THE REPAIR OF THE DAMAGED AIRCRAFT THEY SELL.
