1939 Porterfield Collegiate CP-50 Project For Sale

 Asking $3000. My grandfather bought this plane in 1966. The logs show that it was last flown in 1961. I wanted to keep it after he passed in hopes that maybe one day I’d have the means to have it restored. Unfortunately, I’m having to sell it. The fuselage was recovered about 15 years ago and is being stored in the backyard under tarps at this time. The wings and tail feathers have always been garage kept.Paperwork: I have the aircraft & engine log books, bills of sale, registrations,…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
My grandfather was an A&P mechanic, flight instructor, president of an ultralite club in southern CA for over 17 years and he collected vintage aircrafts, parts, radios etc. He past away last year. I was designated to go through and liquidate all of his "stuff." In the process, I developed a newfound love of aircraft and want to get my pilot's license soon. I also inherited his 1939 Porterfield CP-50. It has been in his backyard since before I was born. My dream is to fly it one day.
Do you own a Porterfield Airplane?

Heather,

Sorry it took so long to reply.  I need to check this site more often.  We fly two of the three Porterfields almost every weekend.  The third bird will be up by summer.

Heather,

No I didn't know your Grandfather, but I had talked to Mark Southerland back in Febuary and he sent me a couple of photos of the CP-50.

Heather, I noticed that N21987's registration is in question with the sale reported on FAA’s website. http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNum_Results.aspx?NNumbertxt=21987 At the risk of going where I’m not wanted --- hopefully you have turned in the required paperwork to transfer it into your name. If you loose the registration it could be a real problem getting it back into the USA ‘N’ system. You may be totally aware of all of this and it’s the fault of the FAA (they are months behind). If however you are not familiar with this let me know and I’ll try to help.

Cheers

Hi. It’s exciting to hear that another Porterfield is in the hands of someone who cares. What shape is your 1939 CP-50 in. You mentioned it was in the back yard. Covered I hope. Do you have plans for restoring it? Do you have the original Continental engine? We have quite a few people on this site from Texas. So, there's bound to be someone who could help you if your ambition is to restore it (including me). Oh, so many questions! My porterfield is a 1941 LP-65. If you are not fimilar with Porterfields the “L” stands for Lycoming and of course the “65” is the horse power. Yours would have a somewhat rare Contiental. I’ve spent many a happy hour in mine. But sadily it's currently down for a recover of the fuselage and number 3 behind a couple of other airplanes. It seems I’m spending more time working on other peoples airplanes than my own. Anyway, if you don’t already know the ‘late model’ Porterfields are a delight to fly. Faster than a J-3 cub and much more comfortable as well as easier to get in and out of. Perhaps you will have time to post a few pictures of yours.

Best Regards

Ernie

Heather,

Welcome to our Porterfield Airplane Club on-line. I'm sorry to hear of your Gandfather's passing, but I am also glad to hear that you want to carry on his legacy. That would be a neat and special bond between you and him. Your Grandfather didn't happen to also be a Preacher, did he?

Welcome aboard.

Tom Porterfield
