    How much could a UC-1 twin Seabee be worth with lost log books and not run for 20 years. Also a PA-23 turbo Aztec sitting for 20+ years does have log's worth.

    No log books equals salvage value. Not much in other words.

    Less than nothing. Both would be less expensive to just buy a flying example.

    Worth whatever a buyer is willing to pay for them.

    Considering there is no listed UC-1 in the FAA registry--to include this one--its value would subjective to someone who really wanted one. But outside of that probably worth more for salvage and engine cores.
    Maybe figure out cost to make airworthy and compare to current market?

    I believe there are 7 Twin Bees currently on the registry.
    N25BY
    N9512U
    N9503U
    N950CB
    N123BR
    N747HJ
    N950TB

    Not sure though of their flying status.

    Failure to re-register the N has been re-assigned.
    Same for the Aztec.
    With out build records of what two aircraft were used to make this UC1 you'll never get an AWC,
    The AWC for this one went to. FSDO after the NTSB finished the inquiry, the owner was told to call when it got repaired, to schedule a compliance inspection.
    I had just completed an Annual a week prior to it being landed gear up. (2003) it never got repaired.

    It is a very unique fuselage, that can't be duplicated, If gotten for a steal, 2 engines can be rebuilt, 2 props can be replaced.
    It could be restored, If the project would be worth it to some one.

    Looks expensive... yikes. It isn’t just piston twins that look cheap until you read the fine print. :)
