    Default colt fit in a 22' Box truck ?

    I am looking to pick up a colt project and thinking I can rent a one way Penske truck 21'7 long x 7'7"high x 8'1" wide wondering if I can get it in there wings off prop off , cinch the gear together and close the door ? Anyone know the width of elevator from tip to tip and horizontal tip to tip ? Nose to tail rudder on or rudder off ? Any info will help

    I believe you can, but the elevators are over width for highway travel so have to come off and the rudder removal would help in the length and height area also. Horizontal stabilizer can stay on.

    This is the complete airplane drawing for the Colt. You can check the measurements versus the size of the box on the truck

    With Tom's dimensions the pictures here might help with the loading and securing.
