An online search reveals 2 different accidents for N49680. The current owner does not believe this aircraft was in an accident. Any buyer should do proper research and/or inspect the aircraft and make their own judgement. See links below for information on the accidents.

Here is what the current owner has said regarding the two accidents for N49680: "Identities" (paperwork) are bought & sold, and once bought, applied to restoration projects, usually after the original aircraft is "parted out" or wrecked. A note from Harry Kraemer - Please do your research if you have any concerns regarding the history of this aircraft. I believe in posting everything I know regarding an aircraft I list for sale.
Engine Specs
Engine logs start January 1984 - see link below to view engine logs online. We do not have any other history on the engine other than what is in the log books below.

Engine & airframe 350 Hours SMOH/restoration
Continental 220hp 350 Hours SMOH

The owner does not know for sure if the cylinder are steel or chrome, he thinks they may be steel.

The engine log states that the Continental engine was overhauled according to manufacturer's specification (or words to that effect). There is no explicit entry pertaining to the type of bearings installed.

The engine was last run in 2007 at the annual inspection

October 13 2020 - We spoke to one interested person that received an estimate of about $40,000.00 for an engine overhaul (if you decide that you want or require an overhaul). This in for information purposes only.

The airplane has a functional electric-inertial starter installed. The airplane can be started by hand-cranking the inertial starter to spin up its internal flywheel, or using a set of jumper cables to spin up the internal flywheel by applying 12 VDC power to the starter's electrical contacts, then pulling the starter clutch t-handle located next to the primer, adjacent to the crank fitting in the upper-left-front cowling of the airplane.

We do have a Jasco alternator which will fit on the step-up drive we have; however, this alternator, the step-up drive, and the 50-amp generator which we also have will all require overhaul. The step-up drive and the 50-amp generator will be included in the purchase.
