1949 Beechcraft Bonanza A35
**LOCATED IN OZARK, AR**
***Search all you want, you will never find an older Bonanza in the condition of this one
Older bonanzas are seldom found in this condition. I've owned a ton of them and this is by far the nicest one I've ever seen. This plane is amazing with $30K or more in late model upgrades such as auxiliary fuel tank, large 3rd windows, extended baggage area, new interior, new paint, V35 wingtips, center stack radio, 225hp upgrade, no AD prop, plumbed for tip tanks, etc, etc.
This plane has flown a LOT in the last several years and been extremely well maintained with an open checkbook. Plane flies EXTREMELY well.
**Available for additional cost is a Dual Yoke**
AIRFRAME 5150 TTAF*EXTREMELY* clean with new paint, late model wingtips with built in strobes, large 3rd window and no-AD tail. Windshield has been upgraded to the one-piece sloped style and side windows have been replaced with the 3/8" Beryl D. Shannon with built in vent windows on both sides. All control surfaces have been re-skinned with aluminum vice the old magnesium materials used. A 10 gallon auxiliary fuel tank is installed, giving you 50 gallons of total fuel and a range farther than most people need to fly. *The 10 gallon tank is much better than the 20 gallon aux tank as it does not take away baggage storage space.
ENGINE 1201 hours since major overhaul and 500 hours since new cylinders on the upgraded E-225 engine. This is without a doubt the cleanest E-series engine I've ever seen. These engines are the most fuel efficient ever installed in a bonanza with fuel burn of 10 gallons per hour at 160 mph pretty normal. Or, slow down a little to 130-135 and fuel burn of 8gph is easily attainable. In a recent cross country trip at 4500', 2050rpm, 20.5 inches of MP, I had an indicated airspeed of 145, and ground speed of 158 (*averaged for wind by flying opposite headings) and a fuel burn for the entire 250 mile trip of 7.4 gallons per hour. That's almost unheard of when a Cessna 150 will burn 6-6.5 gallons per hour at half that speed if you're lucky. There is an STC to run non-ethanol 87 octane auto fuel if you like, saving as much as $2/gallon and allowing you to fly for under $20/hour.
PROP Only 500 hours since major overhaul on the Hartzell hydraulic prop
AVIONICS Panel has been modified and upgraded to a center-stack layout. The wingtips are plumbed for tip tanks and the indicators and valves are still installed. So, if you ever wanted to install tip tanks again, the hard and expensive parts are already done. Narco MX12D digital nav/com flip/flop, King KT 76 A transponder and King KMA 20 audio panel. **holes in dash are from a nav radio and indicator that were previously removed (not sure what kind) but tray and wiring is still installed so it would be easy to slide in a replacement.
Interior is almost brand new. The ultra-leather was installed using all new foam padding, new wall panels, new carpet and much more. This is a $9000 interior, not one of the entry level Air-Tex interiors that most planes have - showing just how much money the previous owner put into this plane. Glass has been upgraded to the one piece windshield and frameless side windows. An electric fuel pump has been installed to replace the original "wobble" pump. This will save you a ton of money and headaches, as well as giving you a comfortable safety margin in the event of fuel pump failure. Dual Yoke available for additional $$$.
This is a steal for a Bonanza with the 225 hp engine and at least $30,000 in upgrades. The only thing I'd do to this plane to make it perfect would be to re-install a Nav radio and indicator where one was removed from the panel by the previous owner. You might find a bonanza for less money but you'll have a hard time finding one any nicer and I'm not sure that one even exists.
Delivery possible. We have several pilots who would jump at the opportunity to fly this awesome aircraft.
