The above specifications are for a CESSNA 175B with the Continental GO-300 engine.  The GO-300 was essentially a Continental O-300 that operated at a higher rpm to obtain 175 hp.  Cruise operation at apx 3000 rpm translated into more maintenance, lower TBO, higher oil and fuel consumption and more wear and tear on the engine.
 

CESSNA 175 HISTORY
 
The Cessna 175 was manufactured for 5 years
 
          1958  -  703 Aircraft                    1961  -  225 Aircraft
          1959  -  535 Aircraft                    1962  -  117 Aircraft
          1960  -  539 Aircraft                    1963  -    65 Aircraft
 
          Note: 1963 model ID changed to P172 SKYHAWK
 
Original engine was Continental GO-300
 
          (The GO-300 is essentially a geared Continental 0-300 engine
          that  operates at a higher rpm to achieve the 175 hp.  The higher
          rpm results in more maintenance, lower TBO & less fuel efficency.
 
Cessna 175 Engine Conversions
 
          As a result of maintenance problems and costs associated
         with the GO-300  gear box and engine,  many C-175s have
          been converted to Lycoming 180 or Franklin engines 
 

FLYING ADVENTURES CESSNA 175B

Our 175B is converted to a Lycoming 180 hp engine which provides approx 5 more hp and at cruise operates in the 2350 - 2450 range without the high rpm and gearbox problems associated with the original Continental GO-300 engine.
 
AIRCRAFT is located at MYF (Montgomery Field) - SAN DIEGO,  CA.
