SOLD - 1966 Cessna T-210F Turbo Centurion - SOLD

N6759R is one of a rare breed, serial number 159 of 197 total strutted Turbo 210's built.  The T210F airframe is neary identical to the 206 airframe of that vintage.  The higher lift airfoil gives this plane excellent short field performance.  The 1967 and later model 210's had the semi-laminar flow airfoil that optimized speed at the expense of lift production.  The F-model Turbo 210 feels like it jumps off the ground compared to later models.

N6759R started its life in in the Los Angeles area, sold originally at Gunnell Aviation of Santa Monica.  Looking internally at the airframe, it is apparent this plane was based well inland at the Whiteman and San Fernando airports near the original owner in La Crescenta CA.  This plane appears to have spent little time outside during its time in Los Angeles area, with the glass showing minimal sun exposure for a plane of this vintage and the interior of the plane having low levels of surface corrosion.

The second owner was the ranch manager for Ralph Lauren's ranch near Telluride.  The second owner purchased the plane in 1993, and it was based in Western Colorado.  We purchased the plane from the third owner, a retired airline captain based near Grand Junction Colorado who had purchased the plane in the mid to late 1990's.  Larson Aircraft purchased two planes from this owner at the same time, and we have found both to be very well maintained.

The engine was replaced in the late 1990's with a Continental Factory Remanufactured Engine, which has the heavy case upgrade and VAR Crankshaft.  The propeller was overhauled at that time.  The exhaust system was recently replaced with a  Knisley exhaust system.  This is one of the nicest T210F's left in the fleet.

The Turbo 210F is well known for its high altitude skills (it set the single engine altitude record in 1966 at 39,334 feet) as well as for comfort and load carrying.  Expect 13.2 gph down low at 60% power and about 150-155 knots, with speeds increasing to 160 to 165 ktas at altitude.

Please don't hesitate to call us at (303) 503-8356 with further questions regarding N6759R, insurance, finance options, upgrades or transition training. This plane is based at the Longmont Vance Brand Airport in the Denver area, is owned by Larson Aircraft,  and can be viewed by appointment.

Paint & Interior

Paint is in good condition, re-painted in 1981 in the original scheme and colors, rates a conservative 7/10.  Windshield was replaced in 1981 with one-piece, thicker Cee Bailey windshield at the time the plane was painted.  This plane appear to have been hangared since paint. Side and rear glass appear to be all original blue-green Cessna tinted glass and in good condition with minimal milkiness and scratches.  Rear window is not milky in appearance, but is showing some age.  The instrument panel is in very good condition.

Interior is mostly original and in good condition.  This plane has the exective seating option, with seating for four and rear high back seats.  Seats have been recovered at some point and are in good condition. Seating faces seem to have been redone in a crushed velour fabric, likely done for comfort in the southern California climate that this plane livid in for the first 30 years.  Side panels are original and showing a little bit of their age, while
at the same time indicative of  how well cared for this plane has been over the years.  The headliner will be replaced shortly with new vinyl due to a stain.
