COMPLETE AIRFRAME WITH NO CRASH DAMAGE, GREAT RESTORATION OR RETROFIT PROJECT !!THE 182P IS ONE OF THE LAST VERSIONS OF THE 0-470 POWERED FOUR SEAT ”FAMILY” AIRPLANE CESSNA CAME OUT WITH IN 1956.THE 182 WAS A TRICYCLE GEAR DIRIVITIVE OF THE 180 TAILDRAGGER WHICH CAME OUT A FEW YEARS BEFORE.THE 182 HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE “STEP UP” CESSNA, FOR THOSE PILOTS WHO LEARNED TO FLY OR GOT A LITTLE TIME UNDER THEIR BELT IN 172’S, THE 182 OFFERED A BIGGER AIRFRAME, WITH MORE OF EVERYTHING!MORE POWER (60-70 MORE HORSEPOWER THAN THE 172MORE SPEED (135 KNOTS CRUISE)MORE ROOM, BIGGER CABIN, BIGGER BAGGAGE AREA, MUCH HIGHER USEFUL LOADBIGGER PANEL, ROOM FOR ALL THE RADIOS YOU COULD WANT. BY THE ‘P’ MODEL, LIKE THIS ONE, CENTER AVIONICS STACK AND WELL LAID OUT 6 PACK GUAGE SETUP.EXCELLENT SHORT FIELD AND SOFT FIELD PERFORMANCE. THE COMBINATION OF MORE POWER, BIGGER FLAPS AND BIGGER WING MAKES THE 182 A REAL GOOD SLOW FLIGHT AIRPLANE.ALL OF THE CHANGES THAT WERE GOING TO BE MADE IN THE CONTINENTAL ENGINED 182 WERE IN PLACE BY THE ‘P’ MODEL, WITH THE ‘Q’ AND ‘R’ DIFFERING ONLY IN WHICH 0-470 230 H.P.

IT’S KIND OF COOL FOR ME TO LOOK THROUGH THE LOG BOOKS!OF COURSE THE LOGS ARE COMPLETE SINCE DAY ONE, AND CONSECUTIVE. THERE IS ALSO A WHOLE BINDER FULL OF SUPPORTING PAPERWORK.SO THIS WAS A NICE AIRPLANE, NOT A SITTER, ANNUALLED REGULARILY AND RECENTLY, SO WHAT HAPPENED?A BATTERY CHARGER, HOOKED TO THE BATTERY OF ANOTHER AIRPLANE IN THE PRIVATE HANGER, MALFUNCTIONED AND STARTED THAT FIBERGLASS AIRPLANE ON FIRE.ALTHOUGH THE 182 DIDN’T CATCH FIRE, IT WAS SUBJECTED TO HEAT AND SMOKE/SOOT.I GENERAL, PLASTIC MELTED, PLEXIGLASS SAGGED, PAINT BUBBLED, AND IN THE CASE OF THE WING TOP SKINS (CLOSEST TO THE HEAT IN THE CEILING OF THE HANGER, THE ALUMINUM SKINS SAGGED…
