SOLD - 1969 Beech Bonanza E33A - SOLD

N222VC was born N8077R, a 1969 Beechcraft Bonanza E33A on May 1, 1969 after a 2.4 hours production test flight.  1969 was the last model year the big engined straight tailed Beech would be called the E33A. This was the 273rd production 33 model Bonanza with an IO-520 powerplant. 

This plane appears to have been hangared since new and is very clean with regard to corrosion.  Paint was done back in 1975 and shows how well this Bonanza has been cared for through the years.  There is no known damage history and complete original maintenance logs from new.

The engine has been upgraded from the IO-520B to the IO-520BB with the heavy case and VAR crank.  Cleveland wheel and brake upgrade has been done.  As equipped, this E33A has a very good load carrying capability for a 33 or 35 model. This plane has a September 2014 annual and is ready to go!

Please don't hesitate to call (303) 503-8356 with further questions regarding N222VC, insurance, finance options, upgrades or transition training. This plane is based at the Longmont Vance Brand Airport in the Denver area and can be viewed by appointment.

Engine & Propeller

This engine was installed in the best days for Continental factory engines - not a single cylinder has been off this engine and the compressions are all still fantastic.  The IO-520BB  engine came with the VAR crank and heavy case - this engine should have lots of life left in it and will make a great overhaul candidate when the time comes.

Paint & Interior

Paint was re-done in 1975 in what looks to be the original scheme, base white with accents of Marlin Blue and Kelly Green. Paint is in very good condition, with fantastic gloss and showing just a bit of typical chipping at the wing leading edge and fuel caps.  Windshield shows a bit of age - side glass is in fantastic shape..

Interior is is original with white vinyl borders and grey fabric inserts. Carpet has been redone with Airtex supplied FAR 23.853 approved carpet.  Seat belts have been rewebbed by FAA approved shop.  Interior is certainly not new, but shows like a well cared for 1969 model Beechcraft.
