Bellanca 14-13-2 'Cruisair'
| I have just recently purchased a project 1947 14-13-2. It's been tore down for some time. Dry rot in the wings but the airframe & exterior is there including all tail sections. Current registration. All mechanicals stripped except some pulleys and cables. It would be a labor of love to restore to say the least but also could be a good parts plane. Just getting into aviation and wondering if there is any interest and what these are worth restored or if there are any for sale and what price range. ANY information on these planes would be appreciated as I am new to the game. I have to say these planes are very sexy looking and I could not pass up on what I thought was a fair deal on a rare plane so I grabbed it. Thanks in advance!

As Dan Wilkie Said in '05... go to the club for info and parts resources for these planes.

| I am returning 1946 Bellanca 14-13 SN 1346 to flight status. I am on a budget so this is not a full-blown restoration but an "inspect and repair as necessary" campaign. If something is broken or deteriorated I fix it. If something is a little beat up but still serviceable, I use it.
The engine is a Franklin 6A4-165-B3 that was apparently removed from a Stinson. The original 6A4-150-B3 engine used a smaller carburetor than the 165 so the present engine was installed using the Stinson airbox and a rather gnarly-looking inlet scoop that was fabricated and installed in the bottom cowling. Nobody seems to know if this is the proper method of installing this engine. I would like to remove the scoop and install some type of air filter. Does anybody have any information about this? If anything I would like to put the intake back where it belongs in the oil cooler inlet. At least that would be a little better than having it open to every dust cloud that comes along. My airport is a dusty place and I want to protect my engine as much as possible. Any information will be appreciated.

| Looking for a 14-13-2 or -3 in prime condition for purchase OR an airplane which was airworthy, but grounded in the past several years for dry rot in the wings. Bottom line: I have some good wings and/or good Franklin engine to add to an airframe with minimal labor, which then I would fly, OR I'd purchase a flying airplane and sell those good airworthy wings and a 150 Franklin with about 220 SMOH.
Also happy to sell a beautiful 14-13-2 airframe, which has been stripped, painted, recovered, and beautifully doped. Some assembly and wiring required.
If you want to buy the 150hp Franklin and/or a good airworthy set of wings, please let me know.
