Yes, there are a few who, shall we say, need a little sniff of the smelling salt. An example:

$1.1mill for an 840 with -5's? Surely, they jest.

And, from Venezuela most of it's life. That might be okay, but it certainly isn't a plus.

I find this to be a really useful site, if you are interested in the history of individual airplanes:

The add says dash 10 engines but then says TPE331-5. I wonder what they really are?  If would have be a -10 for over a million right?

Even with 10's, above $1mill is pushing it.

It has Dash 10s. You can tell by looking at the EGT gauges in the panel picture.

Dash 10 conversions will have a yellow zone, with a little pointer around the edge of the gauge. Dash 5s just have a normal redline.

A 980 or 1000 will have a normal redline, along with little red lights in the EGT gauges, and more obviously, orange auto-start override buttons somewhere on the panel.

Interesting website Don, thanks

I cannot believe how many 980s are registered outside the country!

That's true. The South Americans really like them, I think because of the high density altitudes.

Also remarkable how many were stolen, and never recovered! I think that's why Bruce said he couldn't even confirm the serial number of the sad 980...

I think that interior is what's keeping it on the market, though. It's really idiosyncratic, and I can't imagine that most people would want it-- yet who would want to tear it out and start over?

I had a 1958 chevy with those custom seats.  Would not be too interested in reliving that era every time I decided to go flying.  I am with Don... Not sure why ANYONE would put that kind of interior (and lest we not bring up the exterior paint job) in a Million dollar plus aircraft and then try to sell it. Maybe... if the current owner did it to their taste and planned on keeping it.
But to each their own I guess.

The paint's not really to my taste either, but I could live with it... which is not the case with the interior.

There has to be a back story to N51DM. I can't imagine someone bought it for resale and did that paint and interior... more likely they bought it intending to keep it and then circumstances forced a sale. I assume Bruce would know...
