boothboy Yes it was Henry Ford's "Flivver" airplane. Ford after the success of his Trimotor set about having a "Every man's" aircraft designed and produced. His thought was to duplicate the Model T in the form of a cheap aircraft. It turned out to be a lousy design and with only five built it was dropped. Lindberg flew it and said it was the worst flying airplane he ever flew.
We always refer to a Model T as a Flivver but It wasn't the only "Flivver" Henry produced.

If no one gets the answer by this evening I'll amaze you with the answer.

(Well, maybe not amaze you but is a interesting footnote in history)
Then it has to be the Ford Fliver, the flying Model T, that never made it to production?

You're right, I do see some resemblance to the first awkward vans there. So someone associated with the Chrysler Airflow program tried to build a plane ?
