This aircraft along with N4198D are being sold by Dee in copper center AK as projects/parts.  Both planes are claimed bo be complete by Dee.  Would be nice if one or both of them were put back into the air.  Currently listed on barnstormers for 49,000.  I assume that is each and not for both of them.

Tried to stop in and view them a few months ago when I was flying through the area, but weather was turning sour and I didn't want to get stuck so I didn't land.
