I bought this plane to finish my Instrument rating and use for business and pleasure, I shortly thereafter had the engine rebuilt at a professional aviation rebuild shop. I then upgraded the the radios to IFR requirements. Finished the ticket, took some trips and took up some other interest and let the plane rest. About early 2022 I started to revive it. Now it has been thoroughly revisited from prop to tail. All squawks and AD'S have been complied with by the on field Maintenance shop at HWY, SkyWorld Aviation.
This plane is as close to the way it came from Cessna in 1963 as one can expect. One could do more stuff but that would be ego not airworthiness.
AND it flies as fast as a new one WITH that 6 cylinder rumble instead of a sewing machine whine.
