questions about the Collegiate

Was there ever an STC for electric start on the Collegiate?  (LP or CP)

Is there any guidance on putting in a radio/xpdr/ elec. sys?

Welcome to our wee club, Marcia, for the skinny Cub, an airplane meant for people under 5'-8" and 180 pounds. 

Pat Cole has a motorcycle shop in Bryan, TX.  I think he still has his Dad's Collegiate in storage, right near his shop.  He had it for sale a while ago, but I never heard if he sold it or not.  She's worth about $5K, but I'm not sure what Pat wants for her.  The A-65 will need to be gone through for rust and the airframe checked for rodents, etc.  He's a member, so you can either contact him through the club website or Google him and give him a call.

Soft Landings,
