Hawker Tempest Mark II Project

We received for sale a very nice project: an original Hawker Tempest Mark II in very good shape. The plane is almost complete and in generally good conditions. It was being restored but the owner now would rather sell it and buy something in flying order or near.
The project has the original Bristol Centaurus V engine with it, in good condition, complete, not overhauled. The engine has the exhaust, intake and spark-plugs placed so the inner parts have been protected. Many small parts were already made and some still need to be repaired. 
  
The project is at $210000 with the Bristol engine.
It can be sold with an R-3350 US Navy overhauled (Alameda) still in the can with a factory-new Slyraider Aero Products propeller at $ 280000.

The Hawker Tempest is a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Second World War. The Tempest, originally known as the Typhoon II, was an improved derivative of the Hawker Typhoon, intended to address the Typhoon’s unexpected deterioration in performance at high altitude by replacing its wing with a thinner laminar flow design. Having diverged considerably from the Typhoon, it was chosen to rename the aircraft, Tempest. The Tempest emerged as one of the most powerful fighters of World War II and was the fastest single-engine propeller-driven aircraft of the war at low altitude.[2]

Upon entering service in 1944, the Tempest was used as a low-level interceptor, particularly against the V-1 flying bomb threat, and as a ground attack platform, in which it supported major events such as Operation Market Garden. Later, it successfully targeted the rail infrastructure in Germany and Luftwaffe aircraft on the ground, as well as countering such attacks by German fighters. The Tempest was effective in the low-level interception role, including against newly developed jet-propelled aircraft such as the Messerschmitt Me 262.
