    I have a 67 model 180H with 4500 hrs TT. The wings and tail are new painted white and the fuselage is mostly sanded ready for paint to match the wings. New TCM steel cylinder kits, case was redone by Aircraft Specialties, cam and crank are yellow tagged and ready. I think everything is there for the engine to put together. New 88” Mac seaplane prop with spinner. I cleaned and etch primed the wings and installed new bladders and drains. Factory float kit and corrosion proof. Has original avionics that would have to be rebuilt. I live in western Nebraska 12 hours from Minneapolis. The plane came from Lake Elmo. I have at least $70,000 in this with no labor.
