The Idea:
"I have the original propeller from my old 1968 Cherokee 180 taking up space in my "airplane room" in my house, and I'd like to put together an auction-type sale to raise some money for the Make A Wish Foundation that VAF supports. This propeller is not currently airworthy, and I don't know where the logs are, if it ever had a log. It certainly could be airworthy with an annual and/or overhaul. There is an AD on this prop that can be taken care of with an overhaul, at least that's what I've been told by the prop shop.  It is a beautiful prop that we had taken down to the bare aluminum, and I've done some initial polishing on.  Details...Sensenich 76EM8S5-0-60, serial number 7488. 76" diameter, 60" pitch for cruise. When it came off the airplane, it had about 4,500TT, and about 1,000 SMOH. I have no proof of this. These propellers are installed on, but not limited to the following aircraft: Piper PA-28-180, PA-28-181, American General Aircraft Holding Co., Inc. (formerly Gulfstream American) AA-5 series, Beech B23 and C23, Cessna 172Q, Avions Pierre Robin R-3000/160, among others."

How It Went Down:

"The prop is officially sold to Bob Brown for $600!"  Over $300 goes to charity!!!  Great idea, Chad.
