I'm considering purchasing an older Thorp T-18, N9557, serial# 197 built in 1970. Two questions:
1. Are there any significant design modifications made after that date that affect the airworthiness or performance of the aircraft?
2. Does anyone have any personal information regarding this aircraft?
Thanks in advance for any information.

On the main forum page, look under "Technical - Thorp ADs and Safety Issues - Inspection Items for a T-18 Purchaser"

That should cover anything you need regarding making sure the airplane has had the necessary safety items addressed.

I have no personal experience regarding that airplane other than it's been on Barnstormers for a while and I personally think it's kind of cool looking, in a retro - early - T-18 sort of way. If the rest of the airplane is put together as nice as the panel it should be a nice airplane.
