Description

1974 PIPER CHEROKEE 140, 5493 TT, EASY REPAIR, NICE AIRPLANE, GREAT PROJECT. THIS IS A NICE LOOKING, CLEAN LATE MODEL CHEROKEE 140 !! 4 SEATS, PLUS THE EXTENDED BAGGAGE COMPARTMENT, MAKE THIS A USEABLE FAMILY AIRPLANE LATE STYLE DASH LAYOUT LIKE A WARRIOR, WITH CLEAN SIX PACK INSTRUMENT LAYOUT AND THE VERY DESIRABLE QUADRANT MOUNTED THROTTLE AND MIXTURE CONTROLS THE DASH IN THIS AIRPLANE IS VERY CLEAN VERY ATTRACTIVE PAINT SCHEME AND COLORS INTERIOR IS OFF-WHITE, IN GOOD CONDITION, WITH 4 BUCKET SEATS, AND SHOULDER HARNESSES FOR THE FRONT SEATS THE PILOT ALSO HAS THE VERTICALLY ADJUST FEATURE, WHICH ALLOWS TALLER OR SHORTER PILOTS TO FIND A COMFORTABLE HEIGHT. DUAL TOE-BRAKES ALLOW EITHER SEAT TO BE PILOT IN COMMAND, GREAT FOR INSTRUCTING OR LETTING YOUR KIDS HELP OUT (THATS HOW I STARTED, AT THE AGE OF 10) ! THIS AIRPLANE DEVELOPED AN ENGINE PROBLEM IN THE PATTERN, AND THE PILOT WAS FORCED TO SET IT DOWN JUST OFF THE RUNWAY, BUT ON AIRPORT PROPERTY THE LEFT LANDING GEAR HIT AN OBSTRUCTION AND THE FLEXED BACKWARD ENOUGH TO PUT A KINK IN THE LEFT WING INBOARD IN ADDITION, THE LEFT GEAR UPPER TUBE IS DAMAGED, WHICH ALLOWED THE SCISSORS ON THAT GEAR TO COME LOOSE. THE LOWER CHROME TUBE, WHEEL, BRAKE AND SCISSORS THEMSELVES LOOK TO BE OK. THE METAL UPPER FAIRING IS TORN, AND THE FIBERGLASS WHEEL PANT IS CRACKED, BUT NOT DESTROYED. VERY REPAIRABLE THE NOSE WHEEL WENT INTO A CHUCK-HOLE, WHICH BROKE THE WHEEL APNT AND BENT THE FORK SLIGHTLY SIDE-WAYS. THE ENGINE MOUNT AND UPPER GEAR TUBE APPEARS PERFECT THE FIREWALL IS NOT DAMAGED IN ANY WAY !! THE LEFT WING WRINKLE SEEMS CONTAINED TO ONLY THE WING INBOARD STRUCTURE. THE TIP, OUTBOARD WING AND AILERON ARE UNDAMAGED. A REPLACEMENT WING IS AVAILABLE ON THE OPEN MARKET,…
