My buddy John Hey has owned this plane for decades. I've flown in it from Memphis to St Anthony, Newfoundland and back, loaded to the gills. It's a good, comfortable traveling plane.

That's a beautiful plane that looks to be meticulously cared for and updated. I can't imagine the total expenses involved with taking a 60's model 6-260 and doing all those improvements.

The only think it seems to need is a new owner that wants to fly it.

You want me to put you in touch?
As an aside, John is a CFII and a flight physician. He can do a medical, or give a checkride.
Talented, interesting guy.

lol. Honestly I was in the market for a 6-260 /300 last year when I stumbled upon my Saratoga. I have fewer bells and whistles but do have a great 3 axis AP and a Garmin 530W which are the main things I really wanted.

It will make someone an incredible plane I'm sure!
