1966 Beechcraft Baron 95-C55

Tail: N17LG
Serial: TE-204
TTAF: 6,360 hrs.
Gross Weight: 5,300 lb.
Empty Weight: 3,486 lb.
Useful Load: 1,814 lb.
Empty CG: 76.4 in.
Fuel capacity: 136 gal. usable

Price: 50% partnership at $65,000. Splitting fixed/variable overhead with a pilot that has the same aircraft ownership philosophy I do. Please see posts to this thread dated late October to early November for more context.

This Baron was purchased for my personal use and for family travel. I have found that most of my flying has been local and my need for this travel machine is not what I thought it would be. It's a great airplane that I've flown regularly during my period of ownership. Very few squawks have appeared outside of annual, and I fix them when they appear.

I've sold airplanes in the past, and I know there's a lot that goes into the search, decision, and ultimately the transaction. I promise to be honest and transparent with anyone who is interested in the airplane, and I ask the same in return. A successful transaction will be facilitated through a mutually agreed upon escrow company.

This airplane is a great example of a C55 that doesn't need me to toot its horn. If you're in the market for one, please PM me for more information (including my contact info). I'm working on scanning the more recent logs, and I will post a link to them once they are uploaded to a file sharing service.

The airframe, engine, and propeller logs from the past 15-20 years have been scanned and are now available for interested parties. If you have legitimate interest in the airplane, I'll be happy to provide them as part of the conversation.

Thanks.

Are the vents on the glare shield functional?

Yes they are. If you look at the picture of the left side of the panel, you’ll see the switch to turn on the fan. It’s not air conditioned, but it fan puts out a fair amount of volume and helps a lot in the summer during ground operation.

Russ, you have a very impressive C55 that reflects quite a bit of attention to detail. I’ll throw in a few observations to help prospective buyers:

Speed slope windshield
Solar grey side window glass
Late style pilot vent window
Late style engine control lever knobs
Internally lit instruments

The detailing in the nose baggage compartment is exceptional! Someone is going to get one heck of a Baron. GLWS

What's the CPVC plumbing for in the nose baggage compartment?

Jason,

I am not 100% sure what travels through the CPVC piping. When I go out to fly this weekend, I'll stick my head under the panel to see what travels through that bulkhead at that point.

I was wondering too. I have a feeling it might have something to do with the custom air vents in the glareshield. Just my WAG.

I used to have PVC Avionic’s cooling from the nose air scopes. The PVC AIR could also be connected to the glare shield.

If I may conjecture, this is likely what that is. There is a powered avionics cooling fan on the main avionics bus, but that might be the intake pipe for the fan's flow.

Good evening,

I have had several questions about photos with a cowling removed, as well as case style, and crank style. Both engines have heavy (Phase III) cases and VAR style cranks.

Below are a few photos of the right engine during an oil change.

Additionally, logs continue to be available on a drop box link. I have just added (in adlog format) the logs for avionics, AD's, SB's, and weight/balance.

I've been pleased at the interest in my airplane. There are a surprisingly high percentage of tire kickers, but a few serious inquiries have been in play.

One topic that has (expectedly) come up many times is the close proximity of this year's annual inspection. Let me say this about that subject: an aircraft transaction is complex and has many considerations (selling price, closing date, delivery location, ferrying, pre-buy inspection, etc.); therefore, any of those can be subject to negotiation to obtain a favorable set of conditions for both parties. More than one person has said they almost didn't reach out to me because they were intimidated by the idea that an airplane would need an annual soon after purchase. If you are in the market for a C55 and you fit the aforementioned mindset, please don't hesitate to reach out to me anyways. I'm open to conversation and you'll get no BS from me.

I'll also say this plainly: If someone makes a serious offer, performs their pre-buy, and wants to annual the airplane with their own trusted mechanic, that makes me much more willing to negotiate the elements I mentioned above. I'll be very forthcoming about the few items I plan to replace during this year's inspection .... On the other hand, if I send it to annual in 6 weeks, I will be less willing to shift my terms.

Thanks for reading and taking a look at my ad!
