Picked up a new project, 1938 Culver Dart.
Looking for a 150 hp Tri-Pacer firewall forward to replace
the 90 hp Lambert.

I love the looks of the Dart. The only problem I have with it is it’s a tight fit for me. I’m not a 1930’s average pilot. Six foot and size 13 feet don’t fit in many antiques well.
 
Very cool. When you say "project" what stage is that? Well, beyond the typical "50% completed with 90% to go" reply :icon_wink:
 
It needs new wooden wings and ailerons built.
A engine that can be flown and repaired.
New cover (obviously) and upgrades to make it a reliable
daily flyer, brakes, radio’s.
The biggest trick will be to keep it a certified airplane.

Good core on the actual engine, but I need everything. Cowl, engine mount, exhaust, prop and accessories.

IMG_1367.jpg1940 Culver Cadet, wingspan is 27 feet, that is over 2 feet shorter than my Shortwing.
125 mph on 75 hp, no electrics, no radios, no adsb, no worries, (also no sand bars, no extra baggage, no night, no ifr). quick and efficient for a flat lander.
