Don’t waste your time restoring an old worn-out Tri-Pacer! This recently-restored classic TriPacer can be yours for a song! (OK, a song and a check.) The major restoration was completed 2011, but she only flew about 5 hours. Last Annual was 9/23/11 and she’s been in hangar storage since 10-16-11. The paint and interior are brand new, the windows are sparkling, and the 135 HP engine has only a few hours SMOH. This is great example of how a 1950s era Piper TriPacer can be restored to look great. She only needs an annual and little lovin’ and she’s good to go!
All logs and paperwork back to 1956 and from rebuild with STC’s.
Includes complete parts manuals, drawing set, POH, and spare parts, fabric and etc.
