For Sale: 1949 Cessna 170A – $27,500 obo

Fun and economical 4 place airplane. Runs great. Near original VFR panel. She’s been my best girl since 1985. Every flight has been a little slice of heaven. We have been on many remote journeys together. Never planned to part ways,5 but I need to go “Light Sport”. Now it’s time for you to take over the controls.

Strongest points are good solid airframe and very good mid time engine. The not so strong points are paint and interior. Her paint is unique as it is redish orange with polished aluminum. I have a new in the box Airtex headliner.  Trade considered for pristine Vagabond or Tcraft.

She is located at Smithville, TX 84R. Contact Ken Peck 512-468-7790.


Logs since original flight test. Hangared since 1985. She has spent most of its life prior to 85 in dry Grand Jucntion, CO. area. Annual Due 03/2015.
