 1960 PA-24-250 COMANCHE, 180 SMOH, LOPRESTI COWL, MANY MODS, CHEAP !!

THIS IS A LOADED COMANCHE !!!

ONLY 180 SMOH IN 2010, WITH NEW STEEL MILLENNIUM CYLINDERS, SLICK MAGS, AND ALL ACCESSORIES ARE OVERHAULED, SO CLEAN YOU CAN EAT OFF OF IT !!

ANNUAL NOT DUE UNTILL 8-31-2014

LOPRESTI COWLING CONVERSION !!

EVERY COMANCHE OWNER WANTS THIS MOD, BUT ALMOST NO ONE DOES IT BECAUSE IT COSTS SO MUCH FROM LOPRESTI !!

SMALL ROUND DUCTS (LOPRESTI'S  SIGNATURE) REDUCE FRONTAL AREA AND INCREASES THE SPEED, BUT IT ALSO MAKES THE AIRPLANE LOOK COMPLETELY MODERN AND SEXY !!

MADE OF COMPOSITE FOR STRENGTH WITH LIGHT WEIGHT.

THIS COWLING ALSO INCLUDES AN INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE COWL FLAP, SO YOU TAILOR YOUR COOLING NEEDS EXACTLY, AND ALWAYS FLY AS FAST AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT HEATING UP YOUR ENGINE !!

LONG SMOOTH NOSE GEAR DOORS HELP TO SMOOTH THE AIRFLOW FURTHER

NEW LARGER OIL COOLER WITH REMOTE COOLING DUCTING FURTHER REDUCES DRAG !!

LOPRESTI PROMISES A 15 MPH INCREASE IN SPEED FROM THIS COWL SET-UP, BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE DOUBLE THE ADMIRING LOOKS ON THE GROUND AS WELL !!

OF COURSE SOMEONE WHO WOULD SPEND THE $19995.00 FOR THIS COWL SYSTEM WOULDN'T STOP THERE !!

THIS AIRPLANE ALSO HAS:

LOPRESTI SPEED SPATS, WHICH MOUNT UNDER THE WING AND FAIR IN THE WHEELS, INCREASING CRUISE SPEED AND FLAP EFFECTIVENESS

KNOTS 2 U WING TO FUSELAGE FILLETS (FRONT AND BACK) SMOOTH THE TRANSITION BETWEEN FUSELAGE AND WING, INCREASING SPEED !!

FLAP GAP SEALS INCREASE CRUISE SPEED

METCO WINGTIPS INCREASE SPEED

ELEVATOR WEIGHT CAPS ELIMINATE POSSIBLE FLUTTER

ONE PIECE WINDSHIELD

INSIDE, THE DASH HAS BEEN UPDATED TO A VERY MODERN LAYOUT, WITH A 6 PACK FOR GUAGES PLUS INDICATORS, AND A REAL CENTER AVIONICS STACK WITH A CLEAN METAL FACE

THIS AIRPLANE IS ALSO EQUIPPED WITH TOE BRAKES, WHICH FEW OF THE 250'S HAVE

LONG RANGE 90 GALLONS OF FUEL IN THE WINGS, WITHOUT REQUIRING TIP TANKS !!

BEAUTIFUL PAINT, ALLOVER WHITE WITH METALLIC GREEN AND METALLIC GOLD, LOOKS FANTASTIC !!

LEATHER SEATS ARE STARTING TO SHOW AGE, BUT NO RIPS OR TEARS.  HEADLINER AND SIDE PANELS ARE ALSO GOOD

ALL OF THE GLASS LOOKS GOOD.

THE LYCOMING 6 CYLINDER 0-540 250 HP ENGINE  HAS ONLY 180 HOURS SINCE MAJOR IN 2010.  !!!

COMPARE THAT TO THE AVERAGE 250, AND YOU WILL NOTE THAT THIS ENGINE IS 20-25 YEARS NEWER THAN MOST !!

INSIGHT GRAPHIC ENGINE MONITOR, A 6 CYLINDER EGT/CHT DIGITAL SCANNER, IS ALSO INSTALLED, GREAT FOR KEEPING AN EYE ON YOUR ENGINE.

ALSO EQUIPPED WITH AN ELECTRIC AILERON TRIM SYSTEM, WHICH IS GREAT FOR KEEPING THE WINGS LEVELED AS YOU BURN OFF FUEL.

THIS AIRPLANE SOUNDS ALMOST PERFECT, DOESNT IT?

WELL IT IS, ALMOST.

THE OWNER HAD A LITTLE TROUBLE WITH THE LANDING GEAR, AND WAS FORCED TO LAND WITH ALL 3 RETRACTED, AT HIS HOME AIRPORT IN COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA.

HE DID NOT FORGET, (IT JUST WOULDN'T EXTEND)SO HE PLANNED THE LANDING FOR NO GEAR  (FLAPS RETRACTED, NO POWER ON THE ENGINE), SO AS TO MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE, AND HE DID A GOOD JOB.

NO DAMAGE WAS SUSTAINED TO THE COOL LOPRESTI COWL !!!

NO DAMAGE WAS SUSTAINED TO EITHER WING !!

NO DAMAGE WAS SUSTAINED TO EITHER FLAP !!

NO DAMAGE TO THE FUSELAGE AFT OF THE BELLY CENTER !!

STRANGELY ENOUGH, NO DAMAGE TO THE GEAR, AND IT EVEN WENT OUT OK WHEN THEY PICKED IT UP OFF THE RUNWAY !!

NO DAMAGE TO THE MAIN GEAR DOORS !!

THE LOPRESTI GEAR DOORS ARE FIBERGLASS, AND THE TRAILING EDGE OF BOTH OF THESE DOORS IS SCRAPED, BUT THEY ARE NOT WORN THROUGH, AND ARE STILL RIDGID, SO THEY WILL VERY EASILY REPAIR

THE BELLY DAMAGE STARTS AT THE AFT PORTION OF THE NOSE GEAR WELL, AND EXTENDS BACKWARD TO ABOUT MID-CABIN. THE DAMAGE INCLUDES THE CENTERS OF THOSE SKINS, AND THE RIBS AND STRINGERS THAT SUPPORT THEM, SO THERE WILL BE SHEET METAL WORK HERE TO REPAIR IT PROPERLY.

THE ONLY OTHER DAMAGE AT ALL TO THIS AIRPLANE APPEARS TO BE THE REAR EDGES OF BOTH EXHAST PIPES HAVE A SMALL SCRAPE (BOLT-ON LOWER  PIPES ONLY, MUFFLERS AND MANIFOLDS LOOK GOOD) VERY FERRYABLE AS IS, AND ONE OF THE HINGE BRACKETS ON THE RIGHT NOSE GEAR DOOR.  IT MAY EVEN BE THAT THIS BRACKET WAS THE PROBLEM, AS IT CRACKED, AND COULD HAVE BEEN THE REASON THE GEAR WOULDN'T  GO DOWN !!!

THIS SMALL BRACKET IS AVAILABLE FROM LOPRESTI

THE MARKER BEACON ANTENNA IS SLIGHTLY SCRAPED, AND THE LENS IS SCRAPED ON THE BELLY STROBE (BOTH EASY BOLT-ON ITEMS)

THE 3 BLADE PROP IS BENT AND SCRAPED ON ALL 3 BLADES, AND WILL REQUIRE REPLACEMENT, AND THE ENGINE MUST OF COURSE BE CHECKED AS WELL AS A RESULT OF THE PROP STRIKE.

I  MENTIONED FERRYING, AS IT APPEARS THAT THIS AIRPLANE WOULD BE A PERFECT CANDIDATE TO FLY HOME FOR THE FINAL REPAIRS (ALWAYS THE BEST CHOICE, YOU DO NOT WANT TO TRUST SOMEONE NEAR TO THE AIRPLANE WHEN YOU COULD HAVE IT DONE NEAR HOME INSTEAD)

REMOVE THE NOSE DOORS, REPLACE THE PROP, SECURE ANY LOOSE SKIN ON THE BELLY, AND GET A FERRY PERMIT, AND YOU SHOULD BE SET !!

THERE DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE ANYONE AT THE AIRPORT WHO CAN DO THE REPAIRS, SO YOU WILL HAVE TO BRING SOMEONE THERE TO GET IT FERRIABLE.

THE ONLY OTHER ISSUE IS THAT THE AVIONICS, AND SOME OF THE FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS HAVE BEEN REMOVED, SO YOU WILL NEED TO USE A HANDHELD TO COMMUNICATE AND NAVIGATE.

THE D.G, AND TURN COORDINATOR HAVE BEEN REMOVED, AND THE WHOLE AVIONICS STACK (TRAYS, WIRING, ETC.) IS GONE, SO YOU ARE FREE TO INSTALL YOUR CHOICE OF AVIONICS !!

ALL OF THE OTHER FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS (ATTITUDE INDICATOR, AIRSPEED, ALTIMETER, VSI) ARE INSTALLED AND INCLUDED, AND THE HOSES ARE INTACT FOR THE D.G., IF YOU WANT TO SLIP ONE BACK IN EASILY.

ALL STANDARD ENGINE INSTRUMENTATION IS INSTALLED AND INCLUDED, AS WELL AS THE ENGINE MONITOR SYSTEM.

THIS AIRPLANE IS VERY, VERY NICE, AND THE MODS ARE VERY DESIRABLE  (AND EXPENSIVE TO ADD, IF YOU WANTED THIS FANCY OF A COMANCHE), SO IT IS VERY WELL WORTH THE EFFORT !!

PRICED VERY REALISTICALLY CONSIDERING THE SUPER LOW TIME, SUPER NEW ENGINE, AND ALL OF THE MODS !!

YOU COULDNT EVEN ADD THIS STUFF TO YOUR AIRPLANE FOR THIS PRICE.  YOU GET THE AIRFRAME FOR FREE !!

LOGBOOKS FOR AIRFRAME, ENGINE AND PROPELLOR, AS WELL AS FAA BILL OF SALE AND FAA AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATE ARE INCLUDED.

AS WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT IS LOCATED IN MINNESOTA, NOT……Columbia sc…..…….. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PERSONALLY ASSIST WITH THE REPAIR OR MOVING OF THIS AIRPLANE SORRY.

WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT DOES NOT OBTAIN REPAIR ESTIMATES, AS WE DO NOT REPAIR ANY OF OUR AIRPLANES. WE ONLY FACILITATE THE SALE OF REBUILDABLE AIRCRAFT TO THOSE DESIRING TO SAVE MONEY OR HAVE MORE AIRPLANE THAN OTHERWISE POSSIBLE FOR THE MONEY.

REPAIR OF ANY AIRCRAFT WILL DEPEND ON MANY FACTORS, SUCH AS AVAILABILITY OF USED PARTS, LABOR RATE OF THE REPAIR FACILITY, FAMILIARITY WITH THE AIRCRAFT, ETC. AND WE WOULD NEVER PRESUME TO ESTIMATE THIS NUMBER FOR A BUYER. BEWARE OF THOSE WHO OBVIOUSLY GIVE UNREALISTICALLY LOW "ESTIMATES" FOR THE REPAIR OF THE DAMAGED AIRCRAFT THEY SELL.

THIS ITEM IS BEING SOLD WITH A LOW RESERVE, THEREFORE WE FULLY EXPECT THIS LISTING WILL SELL TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER AT THE CLOSE OF THIS AUCTION, SO BID EARLY AND BID HIGH. THERE WILL BE NO CHANCE TO BUY THIS ITEM LATER!!

AS WE SET OUR BUY-IT-NOW SO LOW, MANY OF OUR AIRPLANES SELL BY THIS METHOD BEFORE THE END OF THE AUCTION. DONT WAIT TOO LONG HOPING TO SNIPE IT AT THE END, AND BE DISAPPOINTED !

WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT INC IS THE #1 VOLUME SELLER IN THE USED AIRCRAFT MARKET!

WE ARE THE REAL BRICK AND MORTAR WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT YOU HAVE SEEN ADVERTISED ON PAGE 6 OF TRADE-A-PLANE, AT OUR BOOTHS AT OSHKOSH, SUN-AND-FUN, AOPA, AND ELSEWHERE FOR OVER 20 YEARS !!!!

WE HAVE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF SATISFIED CUSTOMERS OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS, SO WHEN YOU BUY AN ITEM THROUGH EBAY FROM US, YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT WE WILL LIST ALL ITEMS AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE, AND THAT WE WILL ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS TRUTHFULLY.

PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS THROUGH THE LISTING(ASK SELLER A QUESTION), BECAUSE THESE QUESTIONS GET ANSWERED IN A MORE TIMELY MANNER.

PLEASE DON'T ASSUME. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT ANY FACET OF ONE OF OUR LISTINGS, PLEASE ASK !

SO THAT ALL BIDDERS HAVE THE SAME INFORMATION,WE PREFER NOT TO ANSWER DETAIL QUESTIONS BY PHONE. OUR PHONE SALES STAFF HAS NO DIRECT KNOWLEDGE OF THE ITEMS ON EBAY.

DUE TO THE AUCTION FORMAT, IT WOULD NOT BE FAIR FOR THE HIGH BIDDER NOT TO BUY THE ITEM LISTED, SO TREAT YOUR BID LIKE A HANDSHAKE!!

YOUR BID IS NOT A RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL, BUT RATHER A CONTRACT TO BUY OUR AIRPLANE AT YOUR BID PRICE

SO BE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION, AND FUNDSIN PLACE.

A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $2,000 IS DUE WITHIN 72 HOURS OF THE BID CLOSING. WE PREFER PAYPAL FOR THIS DEPOSIT, BUT IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH PAYPAL, LET US KNOW, AND WE WILL HELP YOU FIND AN ALTERNATIVE.

THE BALANCE OF THE PAYMENT IS DUE WITHIN 7 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF BID CLOSE. THESE FUNDS CAN BE BY WIRE TRANSFER, BANK OR CASHIERS CHECK, CASH, OR ANY COMBINATION. FULL PAYMENT IS DUE BY TIME STATED, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU HAVE VIEWED THE AIRCRAFT. BID ACCORDINGLY.
