I have had the pleasure of owning a 1974 Cherokee PA-28-140/160 hp for the past 3 years. I have invested a considerable amount of money in upgrades in the avionics, engine, and Interior to make this one of the nicest Cherokee's available. I finished my IFR this month and decided something a little larger and faster would suit the travel needs of the family a little better. I am looking for a new home for a great airplane. I want the plane to be owned by someone who appreicates the Piper Cherokee for what they are....not what they want them to be.

I just completed the annual this month. I have all log books and every single receipt for the airplane since is was factory new in 1974. I hanger the airplne in Gainesville, Ga (KGVL). It has many, many extras. This plane does NOT look or smell like a 1974 Cherokee. She has been my pride and joy and I have spent countless hours and dollars to make her perfect.

The following is the details of the aircraft. I will accept any reasonable offer but would like to be in the mid to upper $20's. Call Kevin Saunders @ 706-974-8316. My e-mail is [email protected].

The plane will not last on the market very long.....and I am a motivated seller.

Best wishes on selling your really nice looking PA28-140/160 and nice too see planes like this for sale. Post some Flyers at all your local AP with those pull off phone number tags too might help selling it, and contact some flight schools in your area as the plane is a great 1st time owner.
