We are delighted to have this stunning Cessna 195 in stock, this 195 has a Jacobs R755-S 7 cylinder radial engine producing 350hp and sounds every bit as good as she looks !
This aircraft was first registered to Edward Toler of San Antonio Texas. Built in 1952 this was the executive aircraft of its day. Mr E Toler owned the aircraft until 1984 when it appears it was sold to a John F Stone of Fort Davis, Texas. In 1956 N1581D was fitted with a Camera System at STA 59. This was undertaken to perform survey work for Exxon in the 50’s and 60’s. In 1957 the R755-B2 engine was replaced with the more powerful P&W R985 450hp engine along with a 20 US gallon aux tank located aft of baggage compartment. In 1963 the centre section front spar fuselage mod kit was installed. More effective Cessna 310 brakes are also installed. By 1975 the engine had reverted back to an R755-S (turbo) engine producing some 350hp.
