If you are looking to do some real back country flying or haul the whole family plus luggage... Look no further. This Cessna Skywagon Project is for you.

This is a 1965 Cessna 185D Project for sale with (most likely) the lowest time of any Skywagon in the World! We are selling this project as our repair shop is currently booked out, otherwise we would take it on ourselves!
This aircraft boasts a Lycon Overhauled IO-470 that has been preserved/pickled with 1.9 Hours on it. Not too mention, it also has a brand new Hartzell Scimitar Propeller. What makes the aircraft a project are some corrosion spots on the top skins of the wings and fuselage caused by a leaky hangar roof. These spots can either be address by skin replacement or some sanding. It's up to the buyer to decide, and we are more than willing to schedule inspections of the aircraft. Other than that, put a coat of paint on it and reassemble. Whether you do the work yourself or have your shop do the work, you will make it out of the other end of the project with a fantastic aircraft with equity for your time and effort.

If the return is past 90 days from the date the item was delivered, you may incur a restocking fee. Each return is handled on a case to case basis, and we do our best to be fair and reasonable.

Once we receive your returned parts you should expect to receive your refund within a week or so. In most cases you will receive a refund quickly.
