Remarks

This aircraft was delivered to Socony-Vaccum Oil Company (Standard Oil) in February 1940.  It served as a corporate transport for three years and then was seconded to the War Department for coastal patrol duty through the end of WWII.  The previous owner, Bill Parent, bought the aircraft as a basket case in Phoenix and completed this impeccable rebuild in 2010.  I bought a Howard DGA-15P in 2021 and need to part with this beautiful Waco.
