AirplanesUSA is pleased to offer this Colonial C1 to the market as a salvage/parts aircraft, or a restoration project for the right person. This Colonial has been tied down outside at the Clow International Airport in Bolingbrook, IL for the last several years, and was recently repossessed by the Airport/Village. The aircraft is not airworthy and exhibits typical signs of being left outside. We were informed that the airplane did run several (around 5) years ago, but the last flight on the airplane is unknown. All times are estimates as the aircraft logbooks are missing. The aircraft will need to be transported off the property on a truck bed or other vehicular means. Please contact us to discuss relocation or movement of the aircraft as it would need to be moved off the airport within a reasonable timeframe after sale.

Dual instruction, export and worldwide delivery are available.

All trades considered.

Call Sean Kline or Matt McCormack at AirplanesUSA (708) 743-3349 or (847) 651-2042
