: "This is a re-engined development of the Model 116, designed as well by Theodore P. Hall. A 25,5 hp Crosly engine is in the rear, powering the plastic-bodied 4-seat car and a 190 hp Lycoming O-435C built on the 34,5 ft wing for flying. Pilot Reuben Snodgrass flew it for the first time on November 1, 1947 but the prototype crashed within 3 weeks due to fuel starvation. Using the same wing and another car body it flew again on January 29, 1948 piloted by W.G. Griswold. Both machines used the same registration."
