    Default FOR SALE: 1948 piper vagabond PA-15 with all PA17 upgrades!

    Sure wish I could pick this up from Jerry, but the best I can do is hope someone who appreciates these little jewels becomes its next caretaker...
    I know little about this plane, and weather has kept me from taking a peek at it, but if I didn't have Tweet, I would sure be very interested. Give Jerry a yell before you lose a good opportunity to pick up one of these great little planes that are a ball to fly!

    SOLD. Didn't last long at all. I'm sure Jerry will regret it, but life does get in the way sometimes...

    Not my old Vagabond, it’s down in Orlando now.
    Mine went to the Pittsburgh area after I had it.

    Andy meant that yours was resold soon after you sold it. And the guy probably made money on the sale.

    And Jim, don't know how much money he made because he installed a stroker crank on the C-85 that dave had, and seems he made a couple additional mod, at least that
    was the way the Barnstormer's adv went. Also it was on the market for a long time probably because the price was high.

    I think it sold for $1000 more than I sold it for.
    New engine, prop, and starter system.

    That is why I can't afford to buy and sell airplanes. I tend to get upside down in them real fast and attached.
