  1. Is this price correct???
    Seems like it’s a way above market or reasonable value to not have a C/S prop full nav capabilities.

  2. Agree with everyone above. If this plane fetches $180K it will be a solid sell for the buyer. People are just getting greedy because they think someone is stupid enough to pay the price. Recession is coming and people are moving luxury items fast!

  3. Karl is this still available? Please let me know.

    My budget will be a little less than your asking, but possibly we could make a deal.

  4. I’ve been looking for an RV-7 for a while and your plane is very nice. The highest I’ve seen an RV-7 advertised recently is in the ~$180k range with similar avionics, professional paint and interior, and C/S prop. If you are negotiable on price, I’d like to talk to you.
