Dec 8th, 2018 - Stolp Starduster Too For Sale
Stolp Starduster Too For Sale
Cliff and Bernie have seen it and offer the following observations: It has apparently been inoperative for nearly 40 years based upon the tach time of 7.49 hr.and the build date of 1978 on the data tag, but it could be a new tach with only that time on it. There are no log books and the registration has been cancelled. The engine is a Lycoming O-360 narrow deck of 160 hp. It has a pressure carb for inverted flight as well as an inverted oil system. Engine time and condition are unknown. There is no charging system. The prop shows some corrosion. The fabric is Ceconite and appears sound but the wings have irregularities in their trailing edges. There is some damage to the right front of the center section.
