This aircraft was purchased around 2000 from a museum in Olympia Washington where it was displayed as a Taylorcraft L2. Its history is more complicated, and interesting, than that. It began life in 1942 when it was delivered to the US Army Air Corps as a TG 6 glider. The TG6 was a D model Taylorcraft with the firewall forward modified to replace the engine with a seat where one of two students sat during training flights.
At the end of the war, this aircraft was released from active duty and sold as surplus. It was converted back to a power aircraft and put into civilian use, designated a DF-65 by the FAA. The Franklin engine was later replaced with a Continential 65 hp engine which is still on the airplane and has 810 hours.
This airplane has been very lightly used, spending time on static display in an indoor museum, then owned by the same owner for over 20 years, living a soft and sheltered life in a hangar.
