“Cuffed” Wings for the Legacy

The retrofit Wing Cuff Kits sell for $1495.
The Evolution attends Barrett Jackson:
People often wonder about our participation at the Barrett-Jackson and Monterey Concours classic car events. These events are attended by literally hundreds of thousands of automobile enthusiasts and many of those are also pilots and aircraft enthusiasts. Most importantly, these enthusiasts also have an innate appreciation for fine machinery, design and high performance. To some, the cost of an Evolution may be half of what they may have paid for a car in their collection. The attendees at these events are exciting, knowledgeable, and interesting people, who are great fun to get to know and to talk with about our great airplane.
You have to admit, the Evolution looks right at home here among Cobras, GT-40’s, and a Grand Sport Corvette.
