externally, but it spent almost all it's life in a hanger when not flying, so is in great shape. The interior and upholstery is in excellent shape. The owner we built it for quit flying for medical reasons and I bought it back from him. I don't really want to sell it, but have decided to sell it to invest in new design work I am doing. With it's 160hp and Borer prop the takeoff and climb performance is awesome.
It also has a GPS coupled autopilot! I flew this one about 10 years ago, it was very well built and performed like you would expect from a 260 hp Hotrod North Star. If you don't want the IO540, you could sell the engine and prop and install an O320 or O360. The airplane is U.S registered.
It's not very often that a North Star comes up for sale, their owners just don't want to give up the extraordinary flying qualities, rugged durability, and easy maintenance! As a service, if they do want to sell, I will list them here. Here are a few.
