1973 Cessna 177 RG
PAINT: WHITE OVERALL WITH RED, BLACK AND GOLD TRIM
The aircraft paint [repainted in 2004] covers and protects the airframe very well. The paint has a beautiful wet luster over the entire airframe, shows well even very close up and is not exhibiting any oxidation. There is one small chip of missing paint on the left stabilator tip, and some tiny paint chip dings on the leading edges of the stabilator. On the top of the left wing tip is a small paint chip and crack. There are a few small paint chips at the cowling air intakes where the two cowling halves join together.
The windshield and cabin windows are clear, with minimal light scratches and no hazing.

Important history notes - The airplane experienced a gear up landing in 1987. The repair is very well documented using new factory skins and recorded in the logs and on an FAA form 337. There is also a small skin wrinkle at the bottom of the rudder just above the tail fairing at mid-chord. In March of 2007, the aircraft was taxied into a snow bank. There was no airframe damage. The engine was sent to Poplar Grove Airmotive for a thorough sudden stoppage inspection. Again, the documentation is very detailed on the engine work. The prop was also inspected and repaired. However, in 2013 the present owner wanted the new 3-blade Hartzel conversion so the other prop is no longer on the airplane. An overhauled magneto was installed in July of 2017.
INTERIOR: OFF WHITE LEATHER SEATS AND SIDE PANELS. BLACK CARPET AND LOWER SIDE PANELS.
The interior was redone in 2004 and presents itself well. The seats and side panels exhibit no tears, loose stitching, or fraying. There is some very light staining on the high contact areas of the doors and on the baggage area side panels and aft bulkhead. The lower door and aft side panels are done in the same black carpet material as on the floor. The plastic trim exhibits a clean and smooth finish with no cracking. The plastic liner on the inside of the baggage door does have one place where the plastic has broken off. The carpet is clean with light wear and no loose stitching or pulled seams. There is some light wear in high use areas near the rudder pedals. The headliner is very clean with no gaps.
I have fully test flown this aircraft and it is a well balanced, nice performing Cardinal RG with all systems functioning normally. All logs and a photo cache available via DropBox on request.
