Damn this is awesome. Beautiful classic v-tail bonanza with an almost new engine and prop for the price of an average Cherokee 140. :thumbup:

Ian, do you have any performance data (ie cruise speed/range, ff)? Useful load? Also where is the aircraft housed? And has it been hangared in CA or stored under the cover? Sounds like a great entry aircraft.

For me it was the basic early V tail flight plan of 10 gal./hr @ 150 mph. The range is extendable via the 20 gal aux fuel tank [ a theoretical 900 mi. for a 60 gal total]. Useful load is a pain; as this first model [certified I believe with 165 hp] was set to a 2550 gross. Subsequent years with 185 hp variants went to 2650. The engine in it is in fact the 205 hp variant of the E185.

Somewhere in the description is the empty weight so you can calculate the theoretical useful load. I do recall flying out of a farmers grass strip once with full fuel, myself and three pax,who were well over 250 lbs ea.. So useful load is very much an interesting guide.

Not sure where you get the idea that the plane is in CA. As noted, it is hangared in Castlegar BC. [Canada].
