Official PayPal Conversion Rates Add Currency Converter To Your Items 1965 PIPER CHEROKEE 160”C”, 3241 TTAF, 2197 SMOH, 534 STOH, SUPER LIGHT ISOLATED DAMAGE, EASY, CHEAP !!THE CHEROKEE LINE STARTED IN LATE 1961, WITH 1 AIRFRAME, AND 3 ENGINE CHOICES: 150 H.P., 160 H.P., AND 180 H.P.ALL THREE MODELS, CALLED BY THEIR HORSEPOWER, WERE EXACTLY THE SAME AIRFRAME, WITH THE SAME WINGS, CONTROL SURFACES, LANDING GEAR, COWLING, INTERIOR, ETC.THIS MODEL, THE 160, IS ALL BUT FORGOTTEN, BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THEY MADE THIS MODEL UNTIL 1967, THE PRODUCTION NUMBERS DROPPED AFTER 1964, WHEN PIPER INTRODUCED A “LESSER” 150 H.P.

THE 160/180 HAVE A FULL WIDTH PADDED BENCH SEAT.IN 1965, THE 180C AND THIS 160C WERE IDENTICAL IN EVERY WAY, EXCEPT FOR THE ENGINE SIZE !!THE “C” 160/180 BROUGHT THE 1 PIECE FIBERGLASS UPPER AND LOWER COWLINGS, WHICH WERE CONTINUED INTO THE ARCHER SERIES. A LARGER, FIBERGLASS SPINNER ALSO INCREASES SPEED SLIGHTLY, AND GIVES THE AIRPLANE MORE PRESENCE.I…
