This week's Vintage Airplane Ad highlights the 1942 Funk Model L-75! ... See MoreSee Less
Love that KISS “Standard Equipment” list but then I’m old enough to remember when a radio in a car was optional.
My father worked for a company that was a dealer for Funk Transmissions, they sent him to the factory to learn about them. Coffeyville, KS Sure enough, they had an original Funk airplane on site
Demonstrating fabulous prop safety too!
Weirdest hand prop positioning I’ve ever seen.
A Funk with radial engine was parked at Vista Field in Kennewick Washington for years. Left on a flatbed in about 1986. Used to look her over as a youngster and dream.....
My Dad had one! No one I tell about it has ever heard of it! Thank you for this post!
Kinda guess they did not end up making a lot of `42 models.
Is this the same Funk as the Ford V8 tractor conversions?
My room mate Bernie at Spartan had a Funk 1961
You can see in the ad that she enjoys a good Funk so go get her one.

Congratulations to Glenn Cheatham, owner of our Plane of the Week! He tells us the following history:
Bonsoir from Canada, les amis. Riveting story in the sense that everyone has documented its evolution/storage era. I've always had a soft spot for Champs -- my father soloed in one, circa 1958, just before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force -- and a friend of mine owns one at our aerodrome. So... I'm sharing this on our Facebook page (Hawkesbury Flying Club / COPA 131, if anyone cares to check it out). Please keep sharing such beautiful aviation stories!
This is an amazing feel good story, thanks for sharing. Hope shes flying for many more years to come.
I started flying in 1965 at age 15 lessons in a 1946 BC 12 D bought that plane at age 16 . Had an older friend pilot who owned a 1946 Champ on same field here at Kendallville,In. flew it also, great plane to fly. They just don't make them like that anymore. Flown many different planes through the years own now a low flying and slow flying Registered Team Mini Max fly's much like the Champ.
I learned to fly in one in 1967, then bought a 47Taylorcraft BC12D and flew it across Canada coast to coast also recovered it, was my life back then!!!!
Beautiful Champ! I purchased a 7ac Champ in 1971 when i was 15 and soloed in it on my 16th birthday. I sure wish I had that airplane back!!
Very nice, thanks for sharing
