Might be a nice project 500A for the right person...

Colemill conversion, so probably a sprightly performer. A car backed into the nose, so needs some sheet metal repair there. Needs a new planel, of course. But has the desirable pilot door. Old check hauler? In any case, pretty aggressive price.

Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.

No AP, hasnít flown in 10 years, needs about everything possible plus a $30k repair, and a run out Continental engine.  And the rudder lock is out so probably add another $10k to fix that damage. Thatís just sad. When $150k or so will buy at least one nice, well equipped, low time and very current Shrike maintained by one of best.  I really hate to see these great planes get past the point of no return.
