78 skybolt project for sale. It has no engine but the body of plane and wings (the wooden parts) are there. Please forgive me, I don't know much about planes or the correct terminology. The project is in New Mexico. and I am in California. My dad was building but had to stop for health reasons. We lost him this past June of 2012. :( I do know he has welded most of , if not all of the canopy, and it's in good shape for sitting for a few years because of New Mexico dry weather conditions, no rusting. The wooden wing parts will have to be reinforced due to drying out and there is no engine. Because of the incomplete condition I will be selling the project for around $1500 O.B.O Had I known I was going to put it up for sale, I would've taken photo's. If interested, let me know and I can have photo's taken and sent .

Please call me at 714-728-2768 if interested. I will do what I can to give you as much information on skybolt project as I can. Thank you.

My condolences.

You really need pictures for something like this. There are so many details that affect the value that it is almost impossible to list everything that was done or is still left to do. Include some close ups of some of the weld clusters (preferably the lower engine mount pad and the landing gear attach points), wing fittings as well as overall pictures of all components that are included.

I plan on having a friend of my dad's who knows of the skybolt project and can take some good pics. Thanks for the help. :) Attached is a photo I took of part of the wing. Had I known I would be putting it up for sale, I surely would have taken more.
