Your absolutely correct Jeff, no Turbos either. Maybe that's why I never called on that one.

I'm sure there is a good one out there, just gotta find that needle in the hay.

basloane is an unknown quantity at this point
Full disclosure, I am planning to sell my aircraft,... N187. We had it on the market last winter, but de-listed it because of this virus business ( plane is in Canada and border crossings are difficult ).
That having been said, may I suggest finding a solid plane that needs engines and paint, possibly interior. You can give it the paint job you want, then put remans in both ends. You will be able to have more confidence in the engines knowing where they were overhauled....
As for my plane, it carried my across the Atlantic Ocean in 2006 and gave me 10 wonderful years in the Middle East flying to golf courses and dive spots on the weekend in Dubai, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Oman... Even a couple of fly-ins in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
No de-ice, but I don't really feel I need it. With 5+ hours of endurance, detours are easy.

You would not believe the text message I have on my phone from that dealer himself.... it's shocking to say the least. I also talked to a couple of locals that know the dealer and they said stay away... Now these are A&P's and IA's that work in the Area.

Sadly this airplane is less then a 2 hour drive from my front door... go figure.
Wow, how hard is it to say, "I represent Skymaster NXXX, the asking price is $XXX, when would you like to see it"?

It does seem to be well presented on line, with lots of pictures and the log books, and on the plus side, the asking price has gone down $7,000. Where did the broker go wrong?

Here is a good flying video of N2QF: https://youtu.be/NGuyk9LY_nw

Is Dan Howard related to Baron Thomas? Seriously, there are a few shady used airplane brokers out there. I wouldn't list my airplane with one of them, I'd sell it myself.

You would love my '78 P-model, but I just bought it and have no plans to sell anytime soon.

My son asked me today what my favorite airplane is that I've owned. I've had 150s, Tomahawks, 172s, Bonanzas, Geronimos, B58 Barons, B55 Barons, Twin Bonanzas, 310s - but I told him the P337H may be my all-time favorite!!!

If you ever feel like your Skymaster is not the most efficient airplane, just remember you could be flying a Twin Bonanza at 165 knots burning 34 GPH!

Thumbs up N18jl

This P337 is for sale. It even has its own dedicated website: http://www.cessna337.com/

Looks like a beautiful aircraft!

Looks like it has every option you can possibly get, with the glaring exception of AIR CONDITIONING. If I'm gonna drop that kind of change, I don't want to be sweating as I fly off.

Did you notice the antique-looking electric fan it had mounted on the rear bulkhead? Definitely an owner add-on.

Old listing. Sold over 4 years ago, apparently.

Same story plays out again

So, I had emailed the broker to ask about the plane. No response still after a week and a half. Clearly he has no interest in making any deals or properly representing the seller. That plane has pretty much been inactive and likely to take a bit of work which makes it even more important to answer inquiries to interest in my opinion. And looks like it is just going to sit longer. Can't say I'm surprised by this action though. It's sad to know that plane is likely to continue to rot away because of the lack of motivation of the broker.

The games people play: I received a text from one of the locals in mid July saying the owner pulled the plane off the market. However it is still listed as for sale and the price keeps going down. Started around $120K and now it's in the mid $90's. Not only are we seeing a lot of junk on the market, many are being listed by deplorable's

I've bought planes before by going directly to the owner. A search of the FAA database will get you the owner's name (if lucky) or more likely an LLC name. It's then just a little bit of google-fu to find the actual person behind the LLC - it's usually not hard as long as it's not a Delaware LLC.


Which tail numbers are you having trouble with?

Hey Jim,
Yeah I've been down that road also, I have the cell number of the owner. I've also talked to a few owners of planes before they were listed on the open market. So believe me I've been working on finding a great P337. Just no luck to date on finding even a good airplane to start with.

I would be all over this one if it were Pressurized or for that matter turbo charged without P. Not saying I would buy based on ad, but I would for sure take a trip to see and view the logs. It looks promising on paper and in photos to be a great 337. But you don't know until you see for yourself.

Either way turbo charged is a must for my mission and P is becoming part of a preference vs. a must have.
