Curtiss Jenny JN-4H

Curtiss "Jenny" JN-4H

On January 30, 1957 Cole Palen received (by rail) 19 pieces of a wrecked aircraft from C.W. Adams, Jr. of Winter Haven, FL. The aircraft had been advertised as a Standard J-1 but turned out to be an engine-less "Hisso" Curtiss "Jenny" JN-4H. There was no previous history available with regard to this airplane. Over the years some of the missing original parts (wings, radiator, etc.) turned up, along with a 180 HP Hispano Suiza Model E engine which was obtained from the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. Restoration began in 1967 and the aircraft was rebuilt from original parts and sections from other JN-4s. This is the only Hisso powered Jenny flying in the world today.
