Glenn's got Mono...

Monosport that is. Manufactured in 1929, this is the fourth Monocoupe Monosport built out of 16 in all. Powered by a Kinner K5 of 100 hp, it has a listed cruise speed of 110 mph. The Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum obtained this aircraft from the estate of Bud Dake, who was the 3rd owner.
Glenn is starting work on this airplane while he waits for the carb and fuel pump off the Standard's Hisso to be overhauled.
The aircraft will be painted black with orange wings, at least at this point.
