Project Notes: This Aeronca 65CA was an unaltered original which was taken apart for restoration. Purchased new and flown in Maryland for 40 years by the same owner, this aircraft was evidently well taken care of during its lifetime of service. To this point, much work has been done on the fuselage, which was glass beaded and painted in epoxy, fitted with stringers and ribs, and has had new floorboards manufactured. There are many extra parts, and please note the original instrument cores, magneto switch, control yokes, and center cap. All paperwork for this airplane comes with it, including the original logs with Aeronca Factory Test Flights shown logged right after manufacture. Logs show TTAF 943.55 TTE 975.0. It is my impression that this aircraft is on its way to becoming a concourse restoration with much of the hard work done by present owner, who sells it regretfully to concentrate on other projects. With all projects of this nature, there are some parts and pieces which may not be present; this particular aircraft was acquired in a disassembled state. However, what is there is in good shape or has been restored. Photos are shown below:
