Bought new in the USA, then went to Canada until the early nineties. Our company bought it at that time and re-imported it into the USA as N7701F. We sold it almost exactly 20 years ago to the current Ex-military, ex-airline pilot owner who we are now selling it for. Northern California hangared for last 20 years. No hail. Complete logs from 1977, Canadian and US to present. No damage for the last 20 years. Some normal repairs for a Canadian 185 in Canada.
