Stearman for sale – In Q3 of 2015 Spirit in the Sky will be embarking on another Boeing Stearman restoration with our aim being to undertake this restoration under commission for a specific client. We have several projects awaiting restoration with completion scheduled for end of 2016. Each aircraft will undergo an 18 month nut and bolt rebuild to factory spec.
The engine, a Lycoming R680-13, will be overhauled by Radial Engines Ltd in Guthrie OK. The airframe will be blasted, treated and oiled. No cuts, repairs or dents. The centre section will undergo a complete rebuild to a very high standard and tanks will be blasted refurbished and pressure tested.
All wings will be meticulously checked and rebuilt where necessary. The aircraft will feature a new Jasco Alternator, starter and prop governors. In addition the prop will be the subject of a complete overhaul. For leather trims and seats we use a bespoke “Ben Whistler” leather hide which can be specified by our buyer. Particular attention will be paid to the instrument panel to ensure it is correct as per factory spec with instruments that retain the vintage feel of the aircraft. All instruments will be subject to complete overhaul. The whole aircraft will be recovered with Cecconite, hand stitched and expertly painted in a scheme of your choice. This aircraft will be bespoke according to your own wishes.
