I believe Empire and Mountain Air Cargo, maybe others, still operate the F27 for FedEx. There was one based here at ICT for ages, but it has been replaced with an ATR-42.

Well, I just did a quick search on Controller.com and found a 1978 King Air C90 for about $648,000. :D

Might be a bit more airplane that you need, but it was the first thing I thought of.
