I highly suggest coming to Kansas (IXD) to inspect the aircraft before bidding as all bids are final and the winning bidder must submit a $2000 non-refundable deposit within 72 hours of the close of the auction. I have invested nearly $40k but am offering this Coupe for the best offer over 20k. This is a no-reserve, no foolishness auction and the highest bidder wins. Winning bidder may use my hangar and tools to finish the cowling and baffling or to remove wings (1 hour project) and trailer the airplane home.
