Description

1963 CESSNA 182F, VERY NICE AIRFRAME, 3,600 TT, FIREWALL DAMAGE ONLY. GREAT PROJECT !! IF YOU ARE READING THIS, I’M SURE I DON’T NEED TO BOTHER REGALING YOU WITH ALL OF THE USEFULNESS OF THE 182 SKYLANE. GOOD SHORT AND SOFT FIELD CAPABILITY EXCELLENT STABILITY AND EASY HANDLING IN THE AIR VERY ROOMY FOR A 4 PLACE AIRPLANE THIS 1963 “F” MODEL HAS VERY LOW TOTAL TIME, JUST UNDER 3,600 SINCE NEW ! AND WE HAVE THE LOGBOOKS SINCE NEW (3/1963) TO PROVE IT !! IN FACT, WE HAVE LOTS OF OTHER PAPERWORK AS WELL, INCLUDING THE FAA BILL OF SALE TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER, IN MAY OF 1963 !! SOLD NEW TO NEW MEXICO “LAND OF NO CORROSION “, AND STILL THERE AT LEAST THROUGH THE 1970’S, AND THEN WEST TEXAS, WHICH IS ABOUT THE SAME THING, SO THIS AIRPLANE IS CLEAN INSIDE, JUST LIKE YOU WOULD LIKE IT STRIPPED AND PAINTED IN 2004, SO THE PAINT IS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE THE INTERIOR HAS GOOD BONES, AS IT HAS 2 OF THE DESIRABLE VERTICALLY ADJUSTING FRONT SEATS, SPLIT RECLINING REAR SEAT, AND ALL 4 ORIGINAL HEADRESTS !! THE TAN CLOTH UPHOLSTERY IS SERVICEABLE, BUT NOT REALLY CHERRY. SHOULDER HARNESSES FOR THE FRONT SEATS HAVE BEEN ADDED FOR SAFETY THE AVIONICS PANEL UNITS AND A FEW FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE PANEL, AND ARE NOT INCLUDED. THE PANEL HAS ALL OF THE ENGINE GUAGES, M OST OF THE 6 PACK, AND ALL SWITCHGEAR AND CIRCUIT PROTECTION INCLUDED, AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS. AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE, THIS AIRPLANE IS FOR SALE FROM US BECAUSE IT HAD A LITTLE PROBLEM. A LANDING THAT WAS A LITTLE TOO FIRM ON THE NOSE WRINKLED THE LOWER FIREWALL,THE FORWARD BELLY SKINS AND THE FRONT FLOORBOARD SKINS UNDER THE PILOT’S FEET. THIS IS FAIRLY COMMON DAMAGE FOR A 182, SO THERE AREN’T A LOT OF SURPRISES HERE. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE AIRPLANE STAYED ON THE RUNWAY, DIDN’T DROP A WINGTIP OR GROUNDLOOP AS A RESULT !! THAT MEANS NO OTHER ADDITIONAL AIRFRAME DAMAGE OF ANY KIND !! NO DAMAGE TO THE WINGS OR TIPS, AILERONS OR FLAPS !! NO DAMAGE TO THE UPPER CABIN OR DOORS ALL OF THE GLASS IS OKAY (THE WINDSHIELD WAS REPLACED IN 2013) NO DAMAGE AT ALL TO THE TAILCONE OR ANY OF THE TAILFEATHERS (THE TIP LIGHT IS A WHELEN STROBE, NOT AN OLD…
