Description

1941 AERONCA 65 TAC DEFENDER, SUPER NICE, FULL GREENHOUSE, A-65, WELL RESTORED, GEAR DAMAGED, CHEAP WARBIRD !! THIS LITTLE AIRPLANE WAS BUILT 11/1941. !! FULLY DECKED OUT IN OLIVE DRAB AND GREY LOWER, WITH STARS AND BARS, PAINTED IN 2002, OVER CECONITE THROUGHOUT. 344 HOURS SINCE RESTORATION FULL GREENHOUSE REAR CABIN, WITH EXCELLENT GLASS CONDITION THROUGHOUT 344 SINCE MAJOR OVERHAUL OF THE CONTINENTAL A-65, UPGRADED WITH SLICK MAGS INSIDE RESTORED FLOWN REGULARLY SINCE RESTORATION, AND STILL IN CALENDAR ANNUAL (DUE 11/30/2017) NOT A SITTER. SOMEHOW, THERE WAS SOME TROUBLE ON LANDING !! THE LEFT MAIN GEAR FORWARD ATTACHMENT BROKE THE BOLT AND FOLDED BACKWARD THE RIGHT MAIN GEAR FOLDED UPWARD THERE IS A SMALL DENT IN THE RIGHT FRONT LOWER COWL, AND AN EVEN SMALLER LITTLE DENT IN THE EXHAUST PIPE THE PROP IS BENT, AS SHOWN AND THAT’S IT !! THE ONLY FUSELAGE DAMAGE IS TO THE GEAR LEG ATTACH POINTS, AND A LITTLE FROM THE LEGS HITTING THE BELLY ALL OF THE GLASS IS GOOD THE TAILCONE IS STRAIGHT. I NOTICED A LITTLE SAG IN THE FABRIC ABOVE THE TAILWHEEL. THE LOGBOOK SHOWS SOME TUBING REPAIR AFTER THE COVER AND REPAINT IN THAT AREA, SO THIS MAY HAVE BEEN THE WAY IT LOOKED BEFORE THIS CURRENT INCIDENT NO DAMAGE TO THE WINGS OR WING STRUTS !!!! NO DAMAGE TO THE CABIN TUBING OR WING CARRY-THRU NO DAMAGE TO THE TAIL FEATHERS NO DAMAGE TO THE FIREWALL NO PHYSICAL DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE THERE IS A DENT IN THE GAS TANK ON THE TOP OF THE CABIN, AND THE SCREW ON FAIRING. I CAN ONLY GUESS THAT THIS WAS CAUSED BY SOMEONE CLIMBING ON THE AIRPLANE AFTER THE INCIDENT. JUST SUPERFICIAL, NOT STRUCTURAL THIS IS A SUPER SHARP AIRPLANE, WITH VERY ISOLATED, REPAIRABLE DAMAGE TO THE GEAR SUPPORTS WHAT A GREAT WINTER PROJECT !! NEXT YEAR YOU CAN GO TO ANY SHOW YOU WANT, AND BE ACCEPTED AS A WARBIRD OR AS AN ANTIQUE !! AND YOUR STEP IN COST IS SOOOO LOW !! HAVE FUN WITH THIS ONE !! LOCATED IN ZELIENOPLE, PA. IN A HANGER. WE WILL PAY THE STORAGE COSTS FOR 30 DAYS FROM THE END OF THE AUCTION SOLD WITH AIRFRAME LOGS SINCE 1966, ENGINE LOGS SINCE 1948, FAA AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATE AND FAA BILL OF SALE, ALONG WITH 337’S AND OTHER PAPERWORK WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FIND AN AIRPLANE LIKE THIS THAT YOU ONLY…
