1960 Cessna 172A This 1960 Cessna 172A project is being sold with no reserve. It is complete from.
This 1960 Cessna 172A project is being sold with no reserve. It is complete from the firewall back. Fuselage, wings, struts, flaps, ailerons, horizontal and vertical stabs. Elevators and rudder. Basic flight and engine instruments but no Gyros or radios. Basically, all it needs is an engine and prop! It would be a perfect candidate for a STOL 180hp conversion!! Or maybe a seaplane, or even a taildragger conversion! Create your own baby 180! This airplane with a Texas Taildragger conversion, Sportsman STOL kit, and the Continental 210hp engine would outperform a Cessna 180 at a WAAAAY less cost! The airframe has 3276.3 hours total time since new. I have all the logs back to the day it left the factory. Even the original invoice and flight test sheet. The previous owner was anal about records. He had everything organized in files by date and year. All ADs and 337s, invoices, receipts, airworthiness cert, and anything you can imagine is in there. I"ve never seen better logs!!! It has the auto fuel STC. It has the Cleveland wheel conversion STC. And NO DAMAGE HISTORY whatsoever. The plane was painted in "04. Last annual in "06. The plane was grounded shortly thereafter (read below). The owner then died in a 210 crash in "07 (I think) and the plane was taken apart and Sat in a warehouse since then. A friend of mine bought it and started a full restoration last year and took care of the fuselage filaform (light dusty stuff) corrosion and zinc chromated it. The wings are very straight but need the same light creepy stuff cleaned up. Not bad at all though! What is bad.....(the reason it was grounded) is the flap tracks need replacement. But..... I have a spare set of chopped wings with great flap tracks that I will throw in free so you don"t have to spend 1200 bucks on new flap tracks. The fuel tanks are good but need fuel senders (cheap). The guy installed new windows all around and also had a local upholstery shop recover the pilots seat as a demo, but the copilot and rear seat still need foam and covers. Last month he got a sweet offer for the engine and prop and it"s off to Africa.....and I bought the rest for the radio and gyros for my 170B project. Now I"m selling to recoup some of my investment. Oh, and You will also need a cable set for the fuselage as he intended to put all new cables in but wings still have theirs. Like I said.... it"s a complete, low time, NDH airplane with great logs and tons of potential!!! Why buy a 35,000 homebuilt/experimental kit and spend 5 years building it. Buy this proven project and really have a winner when done!!! Please call or message me with any and all questions! Good luck, and bid aggressively!! Thanks, Todd Current date: 2018-06-21
