Summary

Here’s a great, simple, inexpensive, two-place VFR standard category plane. Colt’s were built by Piper in the early 60’s as their training aircraft to compete with the Cessna 150. The book cruise speed is 108 -115 mph (depending on altitude) while burning only 6 gallons per hour. Our Colt just passed its Annual inspection and has only 235 hours since overhaul. In fact, the engine alone is worth the price we’re asking for the entire plane!

Even though the plane is inexpensive it comes with a lot:

  • Vacuum System and Gyro Instruments
  • Night VFR approved (Nav, Landing/Taxi and Panel Lighting)
  • Long-Range Fuel Tanks (36 gallons)
  • 360 frequency digital NAV/COM and Transponder (no ADS-B)
  • Intercom and Push-To-Talk Switches
  • Auxiliary power receptacle for your various electronic gadgets
  • Davtron Outside Air Temperature, Pressure & Density Altitude & Voltage Gauge
  • Adjustable Seats
  • Large Baggage Area
  • 661 Useful Load, 445 lb with full fuel
  • Sun shade and custom exterior windshield and window cover

Mechanically, it has been upgraded over its life:

  • Lifetime Ceconite covering
  • “Tri-Pacer” rear windows added
  • New Prop installed when engine overhauled, only 235 hrs
  • Sealed Univair struts
  • Original Generator replaced with an Alternator
  • Shoulder Harnesses added
  • Bogert Battery Box and copper Battery Cables

Exterior and Interior Condition:

The fabric and overall cream exterior paint is in good condition, but the red trim paint is very faded. There is some cracking of the paint, but that is purely cosmetic. Windshield was replaced in 2002 and is great. The interior seating surfaces are in great shape but the carpeting is showing its age.
