Description
THE ORIGINAL BUSINESS JET, THIS ONE OFF FACTORY PROTOTYPE HAS ITS PLACE IN AVIATION HISTORY.

The owner is  possibly open to donating this aircraft to a museum/501C3 that is able to provide him with a tax free write-off for a pre-determined valuation agreeable to both parties. He is also able to do a direct sale of the aircraft for what is considered a reasonable price for this historic one of a kind plane. Please direct your inquiry to: info@spaceexcess.com
and we will arrange a mutually agreable  time for a conference call to discuss your interest and proposal
. Final price will be discussed with the owner prior to purchase!!
 
Recent visit by SpaceExcess representatives shows that this jet would need a total restoration if the purchaser intended to bring it back to an airworthy condition. Restoration would include exterior, some body work, engines ( possible replacement), tires, landing gear serviced, interior cabin was gutted and most accommodations are in a removed condition, electronics are original analog and possibly some missing.
There are a host of spare parts just stacked in the main cabin, old tires, electronics, misc parts etc.  Cockpit needs refurbishment and rewiring completely.
The jet now sits on the tarmac at El Paso Airport. It would need to be transported to its new location by a potential successful buyer.
In the opinion of our aircraft professional staff, the best use of this aircraft would be for it historic value at a museum, a display piece with some minor restoration, or the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in DC,  At the entrance to an airport placed on top of some steel beams as a marker/display, for a theme restuarant/entertainment center/flight training center/ major FBO/ at a new major Air-ParK development, in a kids playground, a house/camper/ a young students classroom, training center/ an Airplane B&B, etc.
 
The majority of the pictures shown on this site were taken when the aircraft was new in 1957.
