There is no damage to the aircraft ever. It is hangered and probably has been since new. The annual was completed in March of this year. The pictures speak for the quality of this brilliant classic, and it is available to the enthusiast who simply wants to own the most beautiful 170B in existence

• 720 Com only

Highly polished natural aluminum with the factory correct shade of blue trim.

The panel is very original and uncut with the original piano key switches. The glass is clear and unmarked. A period correct interior is needed to do justice to this classic.

In 1952, the line received significant structural design revisions with the debut of what would become its most popular version - the 170B. Although the earlier versions of the 170 had been well-received, with the 170B, Cessna saw room for improvement in overall handling characteristics. First on the 170B re-design was the wings. The wings of both the 170 and 170A had no dihedral, but for the 170B, the designers added three degrees dihedral along with a twist from the roots to the tips. Hinged flaps were swapped out for a semi-Fowler design. These revisions worked together to improve the stall characteristics. Finally, enlarging the trim tab and inserting a mass balance in the tips of the re-shaped elevator alleviated the heavy stick forces that were inherent to earlier 170 models.
