For Sale: 1970’s Vintage Steen Skybolt Fuel Tank

tank1This tank was purchased  new in the early 70’s, and has been stored ever since.  It’s “new”, but has some light surface corrosion.  The inside of the tank is shiny and clean.

This tank is different from the tank that Steen sells now.  The new tank has baffles and some other changes.  The new tank is also $949.

I’m asking $600 for this tank, but will consider offers.  Will also consider trades, specifically for parts I can use on my Baby Ace.  I am looking for wheel pants, a nice prop from Sensenich or Cloud Cars, aluminum cowl parts, Cub exhaust system, etc, etc, etc.

Local pickup in Front Royal, VA.  I’m happy to meet at a mutually agreeable location for the right deal, of course.

Shoot me an email if you could use this tank!

Turn your volume up loud enough that you can hear him talk.  What a great video.

Thanks to John Graham, Marginal Aviation, and Lee Bottom Flying Field for sharing this on Facebook for the rest of us to find.

It looks like Van Nuts has a rat problem. A hood rat problem. People are taking their street art to the skies. That’s so gangster.
