This is the first factory built and released 1973 Cessna 185F. It was built in 1965 and used as a Cessna model year platform for 7 years. It was sold new in 1973 as a 185F with the cuffed wing and landing lights in the nose. It has had a fairly recent 15 minutes of fame and is incredibly well equipped. The MT Prop has a reversing feature that generates zero or reverse thrust which is very useful on floats where there are no brakes. Very minor early damage history.
