Paint: The finest work by Farmer Johns Brush and Roller Shop. Lots of paint on it, aluminum is well protected, but looks a bit “unconventional”. It is fully serviceable and flyable and has been like this for many years.

C-GGWM is an excellent Buccaneer with a long maintenance history at Lake Central. It has always been well cared-for and hangar stored. It has not been flown much these last few years because the Owner lives abroad and simply does not get home to fly it as much as he had hoped.
This Buccaneer is a “sleeper”, in that it has all the good features, like long-range fuel, the best low-time Hartzell Wide Chord prop, outstanding sheet metal and less than mid-time engine. While the paint is a bit gaudy, it is protecting the sheet metal and there are no signs of corrosion. There is no reason that GWM could not be flown “as is” for many years to come. It flies straight and true and sounds good when running. It flew a lot of IFR for many years and could easily do so again.
There is a real opportunity here to get GWM actively flying again if you are seriously looking for a good, solid Buccaneer. You would not go wrong with GWM.
Note: Tire kickers and low-ballers will be embargoed.
