It's not that much difference in it and a 150 hp 0-320
Climb is around 1500 FPM estimated.
2400 rpm cruise is around 125 to 130 MPH
Prop turns up 2750 WOT
(Actually pitched for a 150-160 hp)
Comes off the ground and climbs in approx 500 ft.

I agree and have been sort of leaning toward getting one. Right now I am still busy learning to fly Miss Smith in a way that doesn't scare the hell out of me and any close bystanders.

Just curious, did you do the restoration yourself or have it done by someone else?

Has a battery and starter and the small B&C alt. I use a hand held radio. I have a brand new Flightline 760 I was going to install but never did. No Transponder.
