SOLD - 1968 Cessna 182L Skylane (P-Ponk) - SOLD

The 1968 182L model Skylane was the 5th year of the modern, wide-body fuselage still in production today.  The 1968 L-model Skylane had two notable changes: pre-select flaps and the standard T arrangement of the sacred six flight instruments.  No longer do you have to hold the flap switch down until you get the flap setting you are looking for, just select the flap position desired and flaps are automatically deployed to that setting.  Already introduced in previous model years was: one-piece rear window, redesigned tear-drop aft side window, new pointed prop spinner, increased horizontal-stabilizer / elevator size, thicker one-piece windshield, magnesium control wheels, new cabin door latches, short-stroke nose gear oleo strut, and vertical stab tip extension.

This Skylane had the very desirable P-Ponk Super Eagle O-470-50 (275 hp) mod to the engine, a 3-blade prop conversion, 2000 hour recomended TBO engine, and a Horton STOL kit. The P-Ponk mod puts Continental 520 Cylinders onto the O-470 engine (an increase of 50 cubic inches of displacement), modifies the crankcase, and then derates the engine to 275 hp.

The majority of this Skylanes life has been in Colorado, it is currently based in Western Colorado, and is available for inspection by appointment.

All specifications are believed to be accurate but are subject to verification.
