    When I first read this post’s title, I thought it was going to be about the Model T Fred MacMurray piloted in Disney’s “The Absentminded Professor.”

    I knew about the Trimotor, but not this petite plane. Thanks for the post!

    The only remaining flivver is the # 1 prototype, its at the Henry Ford museum, they only made 4 of them, the program was abandoned when fords test pilot " brooks " crashed. Replicas of this plane have been constructed.

    Old Henry certainly wasn't afraid of experimentation. Thanks, Jay.
