How and why, was the PW-5 made for so cheap?

Nobody can answer this because it proves you are wrong!

Basic sailplanes do not cost a fortune to build. There is a market for entry level gliders with a handicap of 1.00 for a reasonable price. Few pilots want to own a 40-50 year old fiberglass sailplane.

How much did an ASW-19 cost brand new in 1975?

So, according to, that $19500 in 1975 would be $90,711 now. $19500 in 1976 would be $84827 now.

Which is right about what the HpH 304 costs now.
