I really have no idea what the plane is - other than it isn't a Chief (65 thru 11). The Chiefs are derived from the C-3 and have the same triangular aft fuselage with wood formers.But that's a side by side fuselage frame. Can L-3 gear be bolted on a Chief fuselage?
What papers do you have? To restore and fly you will need proof of ownership for registration transfer and an Airworthiness Certificate, a list of AD compliance, weight and balance, major repairs, logbook records and maybe moreThis plane has numbers, serial numbers i suppose from 1941? Can these numbers bring up a history report? I did quick check
