This 1947 Seabee N6178K Serial Number 369 MFD 2-47

These two photos were taken in 1980 time frame at the Lansing Airport.

Original red, white, and blue when it was purchased and then repainted to the red and white photo. At present this plane is in storage in the Lansing IL airport area and it was going through a conversion to add a Corvette V8 engine. I have some photos of the parts in a storage locker and will have more photos later of the fuselage. The plane has been in storage for over 20 years.

I am helping selling this plane for a good friend anymore information you can contact me for more information.
