This is the last year that the 185 was sold.  This particular plane is the 4th from last one built. It was bought new in 1985 by the Department of the interior in Alaska and they operated it until 2000.  It was repaired in 1996 at no expense with the gov't paying the bill after an off airport landing.  2000 to 2005 it was based in Washington and since 2005, it has been in the lower 48 states with a private owner on wheels. Very complete logs. No hail. No corrosion, always hangared. A piece of history because Cessna will never make the 185 again for taildragger liability reasons.
