So technically not a Major since the accessories were not overhauled at the same time! This motor will go another 2000 hours easy (2008)

The plane has a consolidated tach...only Hobbs...so, technically in tach hours it realistically has L250-R1600hrs.
This Twin Comanche has been IA owned for the past 30 years and was meticulously kept...I don"t think this plane was ever outside or seen rain. It has loads of upgrades!

This is just the big stuff done in the past 3 years. Over $75,000 in upgrades.
Of course regular annuals and upgrades, like resealed tip tanks, all new solenoids and lines, new tires, brakes overhauled, etc.
Annual due June 2018, IFR Current, King Transponder, King 165 Nav/Com 2 flies regularly so times will change.
No corrosion issues...she was painted back in 83, but the nose was repainted in 2017. I"d rate it a 8.
A excellent cross country machine! Logs are kept on ADLOG since the early 90"s...I have all the original logs as well.
This plane is always kept issue free...everything works...open checkbook maintenance.
I know these Twincos better than most guys out there...I can assist with a Pre-buy...I"ve owned more than a few of these and there are very few people out there that know Twincos" from a technical standpoint like I do.
Plane flew 20 hours in the soup last week, ready to go!
1600lbs useful load 170kts true...16gph...120 gallon fuel capacity. Go anywhere!
I am the owner. There are no liens on the airplane and it has a clear title search. Cash buyers only...I don"t care to deal with your finance company.
Sure, you can buy a twinco with timed out motors, needing props, ratty interiors, a non working wing leveler, maybe some Narco radios...needing the gear AD in 1992 and the Heater AD back in 1974 for 50k.
This plane needs nothing, flies regularly, looks damned good...and all the hard stuff is done. (sure I would throw a Ron and Johns 6 pack panel for $800...the shotgun panel is a bit...eh...interesting...
I don"t need any help selling my plane...or dreamers!
(630) 394-2728
Inspections done before auction ends...not afterwards...we can fly it, put it on jacks, swing the gear...tear open the inspection panels...ect. No tearing into my airplane after auction ends...I don"t really want to sell it, don"t need the money...but it may be time to let my Twinkie go...
