This Stinson 108-3 Station Wagon is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be converted to Tricycle Gear.  It served as the prototype for the Chambers Aircraft Company conversion in 1963 and was the basis for the Supplemental Type Certificate that allows other Stinson owners to create this rarity.  It has just undergone restoration after sitting for 50 years.  Wherever I take it, a crowd is sure to gather.
