Detailed Description

This is an EXCELENT project plane.  Very orgional and very clean.  The G0-300 could be saved with a compident engine guy or a great time for a Lycoming STC.  The owner wants to sell and no longer flys do to medical reasons.  This plane is just to nice to part out so he asked me to list it.
Airplane has not flown for many years and will need to be trailered.  Aircraft went through an Annual and has an extensive list of discrempancies.  Orgional logbooks were lost.

Interior / Exterior

Orgional interior 7/10 for being from 1960
1 seam in headliner needs repaired.


Here's the jist.  Performed annual and was never able to run the enigine.  Starter clutch gear lost it's teeth.  Upon removal and a replacement clutch for the pull-type starter, the gear on the back of the crank needs replaced.  Slick 667 mags have AD's we were unable to comply with and parts are unobtainium.  Due to the price of the engine work, starter, and replacement mags, and the fact that the owner just want to sell it, he elected to post it as is.
