Your interior et al looks pretty nice. I would tend to think $59.5K+ is a little low. Just my two cents, since I'm looking to sell my K35, as well.


Hi Sandy, before listing the airplane I had one of the local airplane brokers do an appraisal of the airplane to help establish the value. He indicated the value in his opinion as the "low to mid 60's" ($60,000 - $65,000). We determined to list at $62,500 which we did. We had some inquiries and 2 buyers who came to Fresno to look at the airplane but no offers. Because I want to move on with my next airplane (I intend to replace with an A36, A36TC or B36TC) we dropped the price down to $59,500 to hopefully increase the activity and that has occurred. Unlike real estate and cars, airplanes are unique commodities when it comes to selling. It takes the right person looking for a certain type of plane, and the right timing. At $59,500 this airplane in my opinion is a really good buy for the right person. Don't let this discourage from listing your K35 at what you think is its FMV, if its the right time and you find the right buyer it will sell. Good luck,

Jim

When you say “heavy front fork”, what do you mean?

Your fork looks standard to my untrained eye.

Nice plane btw....


Hi John, I am removing that description from the listing. I did a copy and paste from a Word Document when creating the posting in BeechTalk and that was included. I am unsure what that would mean also.

I wasn't sure if it's still for sale, but thought I'd bump it. Great looking aircraft!

Thanks for the endorsement Sean, had a number of inquiries but still for sale. Biggest LIKES - the interior, ADS-B compliant and the IO-520. Biggest negative - no AP. While an AP would be nice, I generally trim her out and fly with rudders most of the time assuming no turbulence. Anyway, thanks again for the comments and the “bump”. MERRY CHRISTMAS

Jim

Hey Jim,

Any time! I can see that the AP could be an issue, but that can be something addressed later. I've only flown with an AP a few times.

Merry Christmas to you as well!

Sean

Sean, The IO520 isn't a negative issue as I read your comment/response, it is a plus. With the STC we were able to upgrade from the original IO470 to the IO520 which all in all provides better performance and a little higher TAS at altitudes. In California, I generally fly at 9,000 - 12,000 unless I am staying in the valley area and even then I will usually climb up to 7,000 - 8,000 especially in the summer when temperatures can reach the 105 -110 mark for cooler air. The IO520 will generally fly at about 3 - 5 mph TAS faster than the IO470 with a little better climb performance as well. Not a great difference but any improvements are welcome. With the IO520 we generally get similar performance as the S-35 which is considered by many purist as one of the finest 35's ever built in terms of performance.

Without ADS-B in California you are greatly limited in where you can fly. With Los Angeles to the south, San Francisco and Monterey to the west and Sacramento to the north, you will have a difficult time flying anywhere after the 1st of January without ADS-B. Most of my flying seems to be to the south (Los Angeles and San Diego) and without the ADS-B I would be pretty much grounded in about a week from now.

Hey Jim,

Yeah, I deleted my previous comment after rereading what you said. Great points!

That is a sharp K. As others, I especially like the interior. Could I ask where you picked up the instrument panel overlay? That one is nice!

Hi Phillip, not real sure what you mean when asking about the "Panel Overlay". The panel itself was the style with the earlier Bonanza. With the introduction of the "S" model the so called newer style panel was introduced. Some, like myself, really like keeping the authentic original panel style while others have opted to update to the newer "Flat" panel style first seen with the "S" Bonanza. The only thing that I have done with the panel (besides paint and powder coating) was to apply a vinyl wrap to color coordinate with the grey tones interior. If that was not your question you can give me a call and I'll see if answer your question more accurately.

Thanks for the nice compliment,

Jim

Permit me to make a comment.

The K35 is an excellent Bonanza. The 520 really adds take off and climb performance. IF flown LOP, the 520 is also an excellent economical engine to fly.

The lack of an autopilot is a major problem in any Bonanza (in my opinion). If a new owner wanted, he could install a Mitchell IIB AP with heading control. This eliminates the concern for hard IFR problems when flying a Bonanza.

Please note that I always turn on my AP while flying IFR and I am looking for a new waypoint given to my by ATC. The heading hold keeps me on course, which avoids the high speed spiral descent.

So, if I were looking at this plane, I would also be looking for the Mitchell IIB wing leveler.

OR!!!! Install the Dynon AP and associated glass panel in January when it gets approved for the earlier Bonanzas.

Hi Maxwell, sorry for the delay in responding as I have been tied up with work for a couple of days and then yesterday I decided to fly to Catalina for the day. First trip there and it was really a fun trip. Yes the Bonanza is still available. I have talked with more than a few but almost everyone seems to be standing pat due to the current COVID concerns.

I understand that some would not want a Bonanza without an AP. But I think it all depends on what your mission is for the plane. I have owned N802R for over 35 years and obtained my instrument ticket in 1984 in this airplane. I don't fly HARD IFR (defined by me as being in IMC for long periods of time and /or flying to an unfamiliar airport destination).

I generally either take off in IMC and climb to VFR on top or I take off and fly to an airport that is IFR for landing. Almost all of my IFR flying takes place in this type of condition. Fresno to Monterey in the summer frequently finds Fresno hot and clear with Monterey fogged in requiring an ILS to runway 10. In the winter time it is just the opposite with Monterey being clear and Fresno being fogged in requiring an ILS to runway 29. Most of my flying here in California would be between Redding in the north, Monterey to the west, Las Vegas to the east and San Diego to the south. With my instrument ticket and ADS-B in the airplane I can generally go almost anywhere I desire without an autopilot. I have taken N802R into LAX, SFO, SAN, ONT and other high traffic airports without any problems. If that is your mission then this airplane will work for you, as is. If your mission is to fly in IMC for extended periods of time to unfamiliar locations then you probably should look at a different airplane or you could explore options of installing an AP. With the availability of new autopilots hitting the market all the time and the cost becoming very competitive that would be something someone could do down the line.

And YES the IO-520-BA does really get up and go in the K35 Bonanza. Check out some of my recent flight profiles on FlightRadar24. The flight to Catalina on June 6, 2020 was all flown at 65% book. Since the annual was signed of in May of 2020 I have logged 10 hours of flight time and it still shows 12 quarts of oil.

Jim
