History

 

Beech revamped the already classic Bonanza in 1961 by adding a new, larger teardrop rear side windows and installing a 260 hp Continental IO-470-N engine in the Model N35. Gross weight increased to 3,125 Pounds but the extra weight caused rate of climb to decrease from the Model M35´s 1,170 fpm (feet per minute) to 1,150 fpm. 280 Model N35 Bonanzas were produced. Price was $26,500.

 

Distinguishing Features and Equipment

 

Beech installed the first fixed assist step on the Model N35.

An overhead ventilation system became standard.

The aft baggage area was increased and a hat shelf was added.

Long range fuel of 80 gallons became an option. This was done by offering two 40-gallon tanks in place of the standard 25-gallon tanks. Along with”full-time” fuel quantity gauges provided to both tanks, fuel management was simplified, a good safety feature.

The landing lights on the leading edge were displaced with the new, long leading edge fuel tanks, therefore, the lights were moved to the nose and nosewheel strut.

Pilots concerned with tracking troublesome magnesium components might also note the ailerons were converted to aluminum, thus easing repairs and repainting somewhat.

A sideways facing cargo, 5th seat, tip tanks and dual control yoke were also available.
