Presumably, other than ferry to maintenance this aircraft hasn't flown in over 4 years.  Suspect last annual was July 2015.https://www.aircraft.com/aircraft/166494901/n5783d-1985-mooney-m20j-201

 

Could be that the windsock that it hit is in better shape.

It is being sold with the log books, or without the logs and cooperation of the 3 owners?

Looks like original interior and mostly original avionics and engine at  around TBO and probably not Ads-B out equipped yet. 

Kinda looks like its still a long ways away from a full resurrection after sitting all those years.

Log books are with the plane.  It is unclear if the repairs have been signed off or not. The lienholder is now Bank of America not any of the previous owners.  She is available for preview.

what would the former owners have to do with buying at mechanics lien auction?

Often when planes are repossessed by the bank, do to the circumstances, the plane gets auctioned without logbooks.   @Mcstealth answered the question though if they were available.

Proper lien releases so title is clear. Will need both mechanical lien, and financial liens released for auction sale to be complete.

the auction clears all prior liens and former owners.  lots of preparations before auction.   escrow not released to lien holder until all paperwork completed. 

you can bid on phone if you get setup by calling 423 231 3491 before sunday evening.

If someone was considering experimental this might make a great bird instead.  Take this one on the cheap go through it and rebuild it top to bottom.  Big assumptions you are an A&P or can work closely with one that can sign off and then there is the whole potential corrosion issue.

I think Jerry might be the mechanic with the mechanics lien which is why he may want to see it sold (which is all good the plane needs to be sold and some tlc)
