Somewhere I've got a multi-page full-colour sales brochure (in the form of a booklet) from Piper advertising their aeroplanes.
I reckon it must date from around 1964, as the PA-24-400 Comanche with the 400hp engine features as one of the models available.
From memory, featured models include the Aztec, the Apache, the 400hp Comanche, the 260hp Comanche, several models of Cherokee with horsepower ranging from 140hp to 235hp, the 150hp Super Cub and the Pawnee.
I'm not 100% sure where it is, but it may be in one of a number of boxes of aviation-related stuff stashed in my shed that have never been unpacked since I moved from Gisborne to Masterton in October 1998.
If you aren't living life on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

My bedroom wall, as a normal well-adjusted 12 yr old boy (1977), was adorned with posters and centrefolds... advertising the latest GA aircraft, Cessnas and Pipers especially. The Piper genealogy chart featured here as well. I knew every single model by heart. I must have been a NERD!
