Detailed Description

This Colt has been in this hangar for 20 years... 
Engine Total Time since major overhaul per the logs is 1289.00 hours
Airframe total time per the logs is 3063.36 hours.
As you can see in the pictures, the aircraft pictures are as I found the aircraft in the hangar. 
I did not want to try to pretty it up, as I think the fact that it is relatively untouched from 2001 is profound. It is in very good condition !
I have borescoped the cylinders, and ultrasonic inspected the struts. The cylinders will need a solvent wash, and the struts are physically airworthy. I punched the fabric, which was replaced in 1977, and found the fabric in an airworthy condition. This aircraft is still assembled, and complete down to the wheel pants. It has KX-155 coms, (2), and even has a Loran... Great for Museums, but that is how untouched this aircraft is. I am an A&P with an I.A. and can help get it airworthy or, on a trailer. My friend who owns the aircraft is 80 years old, and lost her Husband 5 years ago, who was the mechanic of the family. I am helping her with the technical info.
This is the ultimate barn find for a restorer. This aircraft has the original Piper logs from the factory, and the original engine. As I said before, the aircraft was disassembled, repaired and recovered in 1977. The frame was blasted and epoxy painted. Like I said, this aircraft is as you will see in the pictures. Untouched for 21 years.
