New price for this would be over $70,000! Yes a short
tail but that means as much as 75 lbs lighter than a new one.
remember, this late model short tail is identical in measurements to
the S models between the aft baggage bulkhead and the firewall
and has the same large, balanced tail surfaces as the S model. For other model comparison details see ranss7.com
