This is the 200HP model (the fastest one Mooney made at the time). It was donated to Wings of Hope in 2015. It has a Garmin 430 Moving Map GPS and an STEC 2 axis auto-pilot. The scimitar Hartzell prop and spinner are newer (~ 172 hr). The exterior paint is in Good shape but the interior is Fair to Poor (thread bare seat fabric and no carpeting). We flew it into KSUS in September 2015 and it has been stored until last week. Because of the low time since overhaul (completed in 2010), we pickled the engine immediately to inhibit corrosion while it was stored (pickled from Sep 2015 to Oct 2018). Last week, it was unpickled and the engine started. The engine run and mag checks went fine. The last annual inspection was in December 2012. The compressions, at that time, were 78, 76, 78, 77. We have chosen not to inspect this plane due to staffing limitations. We have borescoped the engine and a link to those pictures is included below. The aircraft is OFFERED AS IS, WHERE-IS , and is available for pre-buy inspection at our suburban Saint Louis facility. Wings of Hope can supply a list of maintenance providers in our area who may be able to assist in making the aircraft ferryable. The aircraft is sold without a battery.
