1953 C170B, ser. no. 26122. It is a late 1953 model which came from factory with all changes made to the 1954 models, but the paperwork still says it’s a 1953.

This is a very clean, solid, stock 170B that flies on a weekly basis. I have put 470 hours on it and taken it to 16 states, islands in 4 Great Lakes, and to the Canadian border since buying it in September of 2014.

Rob, beautiful bird. Sorry to hear that you're moving on, but I understand the reason. Good luck with the next phase.

Well I can tell you, after a year of flying 185’s, 206’s, 207’s, and 210’s, nothing floats through the air with such ease on the controls as a 170!

I recently had a check ride and the old CASA examiner who was doing it had the controls more than I did . I glanced over to him when he said he was demonstrating a forced landing and he had he biggest grin on his face . He was having a great time .

I had a similar experience with a friend on the field here who is an FAA inspector and retired crop duster. It was his first time ever in a 170 and I never touched the controls through a half hour of flying and 3 takeoffs and landings. If his grin hadn’t been stopdrilled at his ears, the top of his head would have broken off.
