Arrow Sport F: Gearhead’s wet dreams.

The Arrow F was built in answer to an US Bureau of Air Commerce request to study the possible use of cheap automobile engine technology to power aircraft. Equipped by a modification of the ubiquitous Ford V-8, this two-seat low-wing braced design suffered the extra weight of an engine not originally conceived but proved good enough to reach a production of over a hundred between 1934-38.

Charming photo. Well-accompanied here by a Harley-Davidson Knucklehead, I think. Correct me if I’m wrong.

  1. Yes, it is a Knucklehead, probably a 1940. With all those nice period accessories, it would sell for over $100,000 today! As for the ford engine, Pietenpol’s have been flying for over 90 years now with Model A engines. Hard to believe.
