This extremely low‐time ‘showpiece’ aircraft looks like new, inside and out. Truly a connoisseur’s aircraft, it has factory original paint, and the original zinc chromate coating under cowling. Even the placards are like new. A massive inspection and refurbishment of all systems was accomplished in 2001. The aircraft was awarded Airventure’s Outstanding Custom Class III SE in 2001, and Best Continuously Maintained Aircraft in 2002. The aircraft was also featured in AOPA magazine November 2003.
