Retro red velor seats and side panels. Black carpet and cream headliner. All in good condition but a bit dated. Rated 7 out of 10.

Overall bright white with classic traditional retro major accent in red. Rated 8 out of 10.

Last 30 years at least based in the Arizona, California, Nevada SW corner near Laughlin/Bullhead City at a private fly-in retirement community and kept in a hangar. Very dry corrosion free airframe. Great performer in those SW hot/high density altitudes.
This plane is like a 182 now because of the 470 engine upgrade. Same size, same engine, same wings, same performance, same speed, same fuel burn. The differences are that these 175's have a fixed tailplane and a trim tab and not the jackscrew trim of the straight tail 182's. Therefore NO Tailplane AD on this plane. Also, no bladders because the tanks are removable metal tanks, 26 gallons a side. This is 3 gallons less than a 1959 182.
This plane was damaged in a landing accident in 2001 or thereabouts and was repaired by Beegles in Greeley Colorado. They come out of there better than new. Complete logs, no hail.
