About the Widgeon:
This is an almost completely original 1944 Grumman G-44 Widgeon, United States Navy BuNo 37763 and Military Serial 37763 USN. The Certificate of airworthiness for the Widgeon is N62096 (1393) issued March 30, 1956.
This Widgeon has the original configuration with two Ranger engines. It has a straight airframe and no corrosion. The passenger compartment interior is all original and most of the instrument panel is original. The time taken from the log books is 2600 TT as there is not a recording tachometer. One engine has been overhauled and the second engine runs well.
The Widgeon was purchased three years ago from North Cascades Vintage Aircraft museum formerly known as the Skagit Aero Education Museum. It was last flown May 2, 2014 from the museum to its current location at Old Aire in Bellingham, Washington. The Widgeon flew and handled great. The overall condition of this aircraft is very good.
This is a historical vintage aircraft and only 276 Widgeons were built by Grumman including 176 for the military. An almost all original Widgeon is rarely seen for sale, especially a flyable one. We are offering the Widgeon for sale at $159,950 with a current Annual Inspection. Another option is to purchase the Widgeon at $185,000 with the second Ranger engine overhauled.
