    Exclamation Pietenpol Air Camper airframe for sale $4500

    I have a Piet for sale. I bought it for my birthday present to myself three years ago without an engine, and have not been able to lcate a suitable replacement. It originally had an A-65, but this was missing when I bought it. The plane had been in storage at that time for a number of years due to a death, but was flown approximately 41 hours before being put away. I currently have it tucked neatly into a 20' shipping container for protection, and the airframe is complete, as flown, except that the wings and struts are taken off for storage. The fabric has one or two small repairs needed due to being moved around before I got it, but should repair nicely. I don't want to part with it, but need the money back out of it for upcoming medical expenses. $4500 to a good home.

    The aircraft is currently located in Middlebury, Vt. I can show it anytime.

    It has the three piece wing. It has a full simple panel that looks as though somebody robbed it all from a J-3. I will have to pull it out of the container to photograph it.

    Due to a bit of good fortune, I have decided to remove the Piet from sale. I have had the opportunity to be able to keep it, it seems. Just wanted to conclude this thread correctly, and not appear to be advertising something that I no longer wish to sell. Since this is my first forum experience, would somebody let me know if there is something additional I should do.

    Also any sage wisdom regarding adapting a 1970cc vw to this aircraft would be greatly appreciated.

    Natty,

    A Piet won't fly with a VW. You need at least a Ford, Continental, Corvair or, Lyc. Volks engines just don't make enough power, especially a small 1900 cc. Hope this helps.
