*Caveat Emptor*The Plane is 75 years old.Has to be hangared, long term storage tied down outdoors is not recommended.
Very good mechanical / operational condition.Paint is a 10 from 15 feet, not as good close up - paint is cracking along the longerons and stringers, and at a few fuselage and wing places.
About half of the interior"s fabric, cabin liner/rear seat and seat back needs replacement. It"s 45 years old.
