My Piper Cherokee 160
Here's some photos of my 1962 Piper Cherokee. This is a factory 160, not the common 140 converted to a 160.

FOR SALE: This beautiful Cherokee is now for
sale. I can only afford one airplane and it's time to buy the engine and
avionics for my Zenith Cruzer homebuilt airplane. If you're interested
in this Cherokee, contact me at the e-mail address above.
Since I've bought the airplane in June of 2014, here's a list of things I've had done to it:
-Prop stripped, repainted and rebalanced
This is really a beautiful airplane and I really enjoy owning and flying it.
|My dad and I flew N5255W to Oshkosh in 2014. We've been going to Oshkosh every year since 1996 (we skipped 1999-2001) so I'm sure we will fly there again!|
|Sharp lookin' airplane, right?|
This picture was also taken the day I
bought it. When I brought the plane home, I removed the carpets and
cleaned them. They cleaned up really nice and all the stains you see
here were removed.
I just installed brand new seat belts and shoulder harnesses from B.A.S. but I need to get some current pics.
Of course I had to draw a caricature
illustration of my new plane!

|I removed the cabin heat box and rebuilt it. It was so old and nasty that the cable wouldn't even move the butterfly valve.|
|All the hardware has been replaced, and the metal parts were bead blasted and repainted. I chose red just because it looks cool!|
|The nose gear scissor pieces were removed, beat blasted, and powder-coated. Looks great!|
|Of course all the hardware was replaced.|
