Cheap. Flies nice and runs great with compressions in the 70s. New seat upholstery but missing side panels. Paint is very weak. Great time builder or make it nice with a few things and some paint. Basic panel. New Concorde battery recently...new Skytec starter...new alternator and regulator. Good tires.

Did I mention weak paint...

Did you say paint is a 10/10? Should be for 20,000

I'll go with what they always say on the car restoration shows on Motortrend - it has a nice patina! 😂 😂

We watch some of the same TV. I have watched them more than once sweep that patina into a trash can.

The plane flies great. It needs paint but you can fly it as is. I don't see a 20k plane needing 10/10 paint. Geez.
