The Garbage of Fools

Builders,

I was alerted by a friend of this item on eBay:

.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-ZENITH-601XL-B-66-SNEW-WYNNE-CORVAIR-100H-P-92-S-BUILD-FLIPPED-AFTER-/132925887895

.

I have no idea who’s plane this was. If someone knows, please message me.

.

Wentworth , the seller, is a very well known salvage operation, but the copy on this add sounds like it was written by someone who knows nothing about planes. It is listed as easily repairable, but I have built the same model plane, and I’m calling it 100% destroyed.

.

Problems with the engine; it is listed as built my me, but I really doubt it. The plane is said to be a 2014 model, but the Gold Oil filter housing is not anodized, it is a preproduction item from 2006. Notice it has no 5th bearing.

.

Ask yourself why anyone would be registering a Corvair powered plane without a 5th bearing in 2014. Sound like a person with good judgement? Read the ad about how only one prop blade is broken, so the engine is good. Sure. Just assume the engine is junk.

.

I’m going to call Wentworth in the morning and ask what evidence they have i built the engine, and if the answer is ‘none’, watch how the add changes tomorrow.

.

I hope not, but I’m sure someone will buy this for $4,500 and want to know if they can just put another prop on it and go flying. Just make sure it isn’t you.

.

Wewjr.
