Excellent full and complete history since new. This WREN 460 is the first production WREN and the only 1963 ever made. It was in storage for 22 years before it was rescued and restored by Jim Robertson of Robertson STOL and it's new owner at that time. Todd bought the WREN company many years after it went bankrupt, and began rebuilding 1960's airframes to Robertson's specifications. They did not sell in large numbers. Then Todd changed directions and installed only the canards and ever-larger engines in 1970's airframes making the current King Katmai model. Chris Clemmons was Todd's employee, and bought this WREN that was stored in the heated basement all those years. With Todd's oversight, Chris re-assembled the WREN with the new O-470-U engine and McCauley 204 prop, and installed new modern canards. Complete logs, no hail, no corrosion. A Super STOL Skylane, four people, wide cabin, 84 gallons. Stalls at 30 Kts.
