  • That is about $30,000 more than I paid for a virtually identical 73 182P 4 years ago. Mine had a 750 hour Pponk, 3 blade Mac 406, no garmin, but a decent autopilot. Total airframe time was about 5000. As I recall the the asking price was $65,000 and I paid $57,000 for it. It has been a great plane. I converted it to a seaplane with the seaplanes west conversion, and added wing extensions.

    mtnaflyer Man that seems like a great price. If I'm not mistaken though I believe airplane prices were pretty low due to the economy 4 years ago. If I could find a stock one for that price I'd jump on it!
