Hi Joe;
Unfortunately, we aren't able to provide this kind of guidance; we just don't have the personnel to track all the shops. We're working to gathering recommendations from our readers but we're not there yet.
I have put a link in this reply to an article written about Pre Buy inspections.
A pre buy inspection can be thorough, or it can be very brief. To my knowledge there's no documented guidelines on what must be included in a pre buy.
If you're serious about the airplane, I recommend that you get a complete annual by a mechanic you hire, not the mechanic the owner has been using. Once the annual is complete and you have a list of the squawks, that gives you grounds for negotiations.
Please let me know if any specific questions come up during the inspection.

Best,
Steve

Hello all:

In the process of purchase a 1964 Piper Cherokee 235. Looking for a pre-buy inspection referral for the Austin, TX area.

Thanks, Joe
