Painstakingly Restored North American F-6, Former Oshkosh Grand Champion, Offered For Sale

North American F-6 (P-51D) S/N 44-73822 “Lil Margaret” has hit the market.

The machine, an Oshkosh Grand Champion in 1993, was reportedly the recipient of a painstaking 12-year restoration that saw it completely disassembled, inspected and rebuilt to award winning standards. Touted as “one of the top Mustang restorations in the world” and “the aircraft that set the standard for Mustang restoration,” the machine saw complete rewiring to factory drawings, the installation of new cables, and overhauls for all systems as needed.

The F-6 wears the colors of “Lil Margaret” flown by WW2 ace Capt. Clyde East, and has reportedly amassed 1,800 hours total time since new and 230 hours since restoration. It is equipped with a Packard V-1650-7 engine with 230 hours since overhaul.

The F-6 is located in Danville, Illinois and is currently being offered for $2,300,000. Click here to check out the complete listing.
