Here she is....green and pretty. I got this from a Guy in Seattle and he said it had been stored in Northorp aircraft wearhouse since 1985. The numbers on the badge date it to being built in 1951. I hade it shiped from Seattle and was almost unable to get it since the shipping quotes I was getting were EXPENSIVE.....$1100. So I asked at work if I could get a quote through the company. Annie called and in a cpl day called my office and ask if I was in a big Hurry for it. I told her not really and thats when she told me if I could wait 4 days the shipping would be $283. I yelled yes. It arrived and was this ugly green and the ways wer rusted somewhat and leeds were cracked and bare in spots. SOOOOOOOOO I went to work with WD-40 and wrenches tore it completly down. I took the motor, that baby weighs about 100 lbs alone, to work and sent it the the ppl that do all of our companys motor rebuilds. I called and taled to Don and told him what I was sending. He was estatic. Where in the &^%% di you get something lik that. I asked how much and he wanted to see if they could get it done first without haveing to rebuild the motor. The next week it returned with new leads original paint for the period and a note saying it was nice to see one of those again and no charge. I sent him a case of beer and got my wonder shipping lady a 10 lb box of Amish chocolot fudge......laughing now shes blameing me cause she said her butts to big... it looks good to
