This 1948 Sedan has been upgraded with a fuel-injected, 180 hp, 4-cylinder Lycoming IO-360 engine and a Hartzell constant-speed propeller. As of March 2011, the airframe had only 1407 hours since new and the engine 110 hours since overhaul. The wings feature vortex generators. The instrument panel is equipped with the following: Garmin GNS 430, King NavCom, Garmin glideslope and localizer indicator, Garmin transponder, JPI EDM-700 engine analyzer, King KMA 26 audio panel and intercom, directional gyro. The ELT is an ARTEX 406.
Previously based at Jenks, Oklahoma, N1267H was sold to Walt Fricke, in May 2013, and, for about a year, had two homes: The Crystal Airport (KMIC), northwest of Minneapolis, and the Major Gilbert Field Airport (4R5), near La Pointe on Madeline Island, Wisconsin, USA. But Walt has since traded it off, again, and replaced it with a wonderful Stearman. We hope, the new owner will get in touch with us, so we can continue to document this Sedan's story.
