Lars is the man!

The Kerry-Keen Souix Coupe was built in Souix City, Iowa by a subsidiary of the Kerry-Keen luggage company that was well known for their trunk (luggage) manufacturing.

To be honest, I had never even heard of this plane until just before I posted the challenge!

To be honest I had never heard of it either. In researching tho it did come up but the photos did not show that rear window.

The luggage connection no doubt explains what looks like a very high quality leather interior.

This is not on Mel's list (thanks for keeping us on the straight and narrow, by the way) but I doubt it will cause any problems.

OK!

Hopefully this one won't confound the experts for 4 days like my last one. (In reality I think the experts must have been on holiday this last week, )

The Aetna-Timm Aerocraft, a 1941 one-off.



When confirmed, make it OPEN HOUSE.
