Very nice Archer and well equiped and should sell fast as its priced right, I miss my 82 Archer sometimes as it was so easy at annuals and cheap to maintain and the Archer is one of the greatest and simplest airplane to own, maintain and fly and best wishes selling her. FYI mine went for 65K in 2013 and was an 1982 with similar times and had a G-430 and took a year to sell, and your paint looks better than mine and appears to have been repainted (?) Stick to your sale price within 10% as you will get a lot of calls from the Vultures I like to call them low balling you initially, and hope you're buying another plane.

Nice looking Archer with low times. It should sell at that price pretty quickly. I like the useful load of the early Archers.
