Item specifics
Condition: Used
For sale is our 1970 Rockwell Aero Commander 100-180, "Lark" with Lycoming O-360 180 HP. This old classic airplane is in great shape. We have used it in our little flying club to get a couple of "tickets" and it"s time to move on to more complex machines. It runs great and flies Great. It competes with the Cessna 172 but since it has the 180 HP Lycoming engine it climbs faster and hauls a little more. Don"t lose any sleep over whether it"s faster, it"s not! I really like this old bird. Very dependable!Here are the specs:Airframe: 4800 total time
Engine: Lycoming O-360 A2F, 875 SMOH , It has the hollow crankshaft for constant speed prop. When we did our first annual inspection (100 hours ago) there was some pitting in the cylinders. Rather than treating the jugs, I sent the engine to AERO ENGINES, Winchester, VA for tear down inspection only to find the crankshaft was cracked. The crank was replaced with all new lower end. Jugs were honed and reinstalled with new rings. Sure feels good to know you made the right decision.When your friends and family are going to use this airplane, a wise man goes the extra mile for piece of mind. It"s a good engine now.
Prop: McCauley

This airplane has a basic electronic set up good for VFR or IFR training. At one time, there was a GPS installed. The tray for it remains but we never could figure out what it was.
Paint is fair but the wings and struts have been recently stripped and painted. The interior is in fine shape. There are new carpets in it. The glass is nice and the doors open and close easily. (some of these birds are weak in the doors).The wheel pants come with the sale.
The Lark is hangered at KIOB in Mt. Sterling KY, about 30 miles east of Lexington.
This aircraft sells with no guarantees (of course) and is sold "As is, Where Is".A $500.00 deposit is required to hold it for seven days until payment in full is made.
