Carl Mortenson, the designer is certainly an interesting character:
He returned to the States in the early 60's, yet with no formal education in aeronautical engineering, designed and built a high-wing prototype, which led to the final produced Evangel 4500.

I'm a bit worried about the location of the door relative to the left seat! Also, Mr. Mortensen didn't know about one of the design features of the Beaver - you can roll a fuel drum up a ramp and into the cabin.
