FACTORS THAT MAKE NC16 GOLF DELTA AN INVESTMENT QUALITY COLLECTOR AIRCRAFT:
-The WWII military history appeals to a very established and invested Warbird collector market. This aircraft has documented WWII history that also crosses over to the most sought after and desirable "Golden Age" Beech Staggerwing.
-Of all of the 750 Staggerwings built this is one of only 20 of the most desirable and sought after "G" models.
-This is the only Staggerwing that has been awarded the coveted Oshkosh "GRAND CHAMPION" prize.
-Excellent logs and records with no damage history.
-Operated, maintained and stored to very high standards
-All of the important operational updates and mods such as wheels/brakes, autopilot, fuel system, avionics, gear mechanisms/doors, lighting etc. have been accomplished with no expenses spared to make this the "ULTIMATE STAGGERWING".
-Featured and documented in multiple major aviation magazine cover articles gives this example more provenance than any other.
-In March 2003, Plane & Pilot magazine named the Staggerwing one of its Top Ten All-Time Favorite aircraft.
-In the April, 2007 issue of AOPA Pilot magazine it was reported that the Staggerwing was voted by nearly 3000 AOPA members as the Most Beautiful Airplane. "Members said it's the perfect balance between 'muscular strength and delicate grace,' and rated it highly for its 'classic lines and symmetry.'"
-The November 2012 issue of Aviation History magazine ranked the Staggerwing fifth in their top twelve list of The Worlds Most Beautiful Airplanes. Stating that "Some might think 'the Stag' ungainly, backward wings and all, yet it has become the prime example of vintage beauty." and "...the aftward upper wing led to the big, steeply raked windscreen that is also a key element of what some have called an art deco classic."
-These facts put the investment potential of this aircraft in the same context as P51 Mustangs and vintage Ferraris which have both proven to be very recession resistant investments.
-Doing a complete restoration to the standards achieved on this aircraft will generally cost more than the finished aircraft is worth. As in high end classic and hot rod cars the savvy investor collectors all know it is generally more cost effective to purchase a completed product. The restoration cost of this aircraft today would far exceed the asking price.
-This aircraft will be THE centerpiece to any aircraft collection!!!
This aircraft is scheduled for annual inspection and IFR certs at renown Staggerwing maintenance and restoration facility, Gemco Aviation,(link to www.Gemcoaviation.com
) in North Lima Ohio.
