1963 Cessna 182F Skylane

This 1963 Skylane has been with the current owner since 1975, and stored in a nice private hangar. This plane is a seldom flown plane since the early 2000's, but has been well preserved.  The 182E and 182F models are the first of the "wide body" Skylanes, the first with a rear window looking out toward the tail.

There are no corrosion issues on this very straight airframe.  Wheel pants are in very good condition, fuel bladders are not recent but are tight.  The radios are basically original, with a modern DG and an older white on black 5" directional gyro.  There is even a vintage wet vacuum pump, something that has come back into vogue in recent years, since they never fail. 

The books are in fantastic shape, some of the best I have seen in nearly 20 years of dealing Cessnas of this vintage.  Other than the windshield, which was replaced in the 1990's with a new, original style, two-piece windshield, the glass is all original.  It is very rare at this point to see rear windows that are original in this vintage plane and in good condition.  The rear right piece of side glass suffered some trauma from paint stripper, but otherwise the glass is in fantastic shape.

Paint was done with Imron in the late 1970's, there are a few areas with a scratch here and there, but the paint is holding up very well. The interior is original other than the front seat bottoms and the carpet, and is well preserved.  There is a small stain on the headliner near the right overhead light which may come out with a little cleaning.  Pilot and co-pilot seats have shoulder harnesses.

The engine is a Penn Yann overhaul done in the 1970's. I would expect this engine to make the recommended TBO of 1500 hours without too much trouble, but there are never any guarantees even when they are new. The prop was overhauled since the engine was done, and has about 500 hour since overhaul.  The current owner put the Cessna umbrella style fuel caps on the plane, as well as a set of auxiliary sumps in the belly for extra protection from water contamination.

There are a few hangar-rash type of dings, but in general, this is a very straight old Skylane.  There are few in the fleet from this vintage that are still in this condition, and this will make someone a very nice traveling Skylane.
