I have decided to part out my Starduster Too.
It had a 540 on it so I have a great factory engine mount for a 540.
I also have a factory made main fuel tank, wings, tail feathers, rudder fuselage with metal work from firewall to behind rear sear, I Struts covered with very light fiberglass, wheel pants, bubble canopy with operating mechanism, Cleveland wheels and brakes, center section with approx 20 gal tank and all flying wires.
This was a flying airplane so I have everything required for a SD Too.

The canopy frame was custom made to fit the standard SD Too turtle deck.
It is not airtight nor was designed to be.
For the faster SDs it is required to keep from getting blasted with air off the top wing.
It comes with the complete locking mechanism, frame and plastic.
It makes a SD look great!

Still have plenty of parts left.
The fuselage would save someone a ton of time and money.
It was professionally built and was blasted, primed and painted with imron.
The metal work on the fuselage from the bosebowl back behind the rear seat is painted with PPG and for the most part is in great shape. There is a couple of hundred hours plus money in them.

In addition to the airframe parts, I have some engine parts as well.
I have a really nice Bendix RSA5 Fuel injection Servo, a injection spider and injector lines.
I also have a engine Sump for a 540

What a shame to tear apart to sale it for parts. I guess a man has to do what a man has to do.
What would want $ for the whole project biplane. Sure someone would like a
beautiful Starduster Too as a project to restore her to her former glory.
Where is the Starduster Too located?

I agree that it is a shame to pull such a great airplane apart.
I have offered to practically give it away and all I got was tire kickers.
I have been trying to get it a new owner for a number of years and have hangared it for the past 8 years.
At one time it was the nicest performing Starduster in existence and was just as attractive. It had a high performance IO 540 with a constant speed prop and had aileron spades. It was the fastest roll rate of any SD2 and cruised very close to 140 KN.
I finally gave up because I simply need the space.
The remainder of the parts are for sale and if purchased could easily be put back together and detailed out.
I live in Stuart Florida so I am close to Jacksonville, just drive down I95 for 3 hours.

Got a price for the fuel injection parts?
The RSA5 is a real nice unit. I will let it go for 975.
I also have a spider I can throw in.
I think it is a Bendix spider but for experimental it doesn't make any difference.
I also have some injector lines, but no extra injectors.
In addition I have a nice elbow that turns the RSA 5 horizontal.
If you need a 540 Sump I have that also

I agree Dennis. But again I fear it's another reflection on the state of the market.

I may be facing the same thing with my Acroduster 2. (BTW sorry for the thread hijack-sort of?)

I Purchased airplane as a project at what I thought was a fair price a couple years ago. It was a PROJECT. It is now a completed airframe with AWC, registered and 42 hours on the clock. I would think it would be worth somewhat more now-----all you need to do is hang another engine and probably just fly another 5 hours of Phase 1, and good to go......Right?

But I fear that will not be the case? Again there are far more vintage sport biplanes out there than pilots with the ability to fly them(even if they wanted to).

I guess I'll find out. I took her around the pattern today maybe for the last time. Then I got out, sat down and looked at her wishing I had enough money to hang a good engine on her. I simply can't afford to buy what it needs, at least a 180 HP.

Oh well

Jack

I just got home from my summer home and still have the Starduster
I will sell it complete except for engine, prop and flying wires
This is a great plane for someone that wants to save a great deal of time and money.
If you got it now you could have a winter project and a super flying biplane by springtime.
I need the space as I have other projects.
Make me an offer but be careful, you just may get a Biplane!

I'm guessing no, but is the nose bowl the same as the Starduster One?
