I don't think so. The darn thing has been flying since 1969, and has over 70,000 cycles on the airframe. I did find it has flown all over the world before it was converted into a cargo aircraft. Here is a pic from 1988 when it flew with Presidential Airways.

Can a -200 even fly in the US ?

Of course they can, but I believe the only ones still operating the type are a handful of charter and supplemental carriers.

Some of the ones flying in Mexico are certainly having trouble.

A Google search confirms this, as it is listed on Airfleets.net as being stored @ LRD since November 2006.

Looking at the other items this seller has up there, this is a rather odd item for them to be selling.

Since the outer wheels and tires on the main landing gear of 737s remain exposed even when they're in the stowed position, could there be a better aircraft upon which to mount a set of "baller" rims?

I wouldn't touch it if it is the one sitting in LRD. I've been watching that thing rot away for a while.

Spending a bit of time in Canada, it was one of the original order for B737s for Pacific Western Airlines. But it didn't fit well in the fleet as not only was it a "Basic", (non-Advanced), it was not equipped with the gravel kit, as were the rest of the Combi's at PWA. It didn't make it into the merger with CP forming Canadi>n.

It did however, spend time at NWT Air, and Air Canada Connector, before going to Westjet.

After Westjet it left Canada, not to grace our skies again.

Last operator was indeed Westjet (you can still see its colours), and it was wfu in 2000. Wonder how it could survive that long, 732 parts arent much worth anymore I guess.

No, all of the B737-200s I flew had them in the early 1990s. It was termed "Tire Burst Protection". Then for reasons I can not recall, they were all removed. If these screens are at all compromised, a "tire screen" light would illuminate in the cockpit.

Back in Nav training we were taught to get on the call button if there was a tire blow out and say "Pilot, the gear". At that point the pilots would leave the gear down and we would do doughnuts over Rancho Seco to burn off fuel. The reason given was the USAF lost a T-43 (737-200) when a tire ruptured on takeoff and when they raised the landing gear all that rotating shredded rubber tore the hydraulic lines loose dumping it onto the hot breaks caused a fire resulting in a crash.

Well, I don't know what kinda budgets training schools have, but both Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and British Columbia Institute of Technology have 737-200s -- BCIT has one with the WestJet logo still painted on the aircraft. Old and now that students have touched it, completely not airworthy. But amazing training tools for maintenance. Maybe a school can fork out the money to pick it up if they don't have an aircraft like that, make a good addition to their fleet.
