Anyone out there restoring a Funk? I have a 1940 Funk B75L which I am restoring and converting to a B85C. I need side and bottom engine cowlings, and dust covers for mechanical brakes (Shinn wheels). Anyone out there with Funk parts please call or email me.

Thanks,

-Joel Marketello

Joel,

 

a friend in Kansas City, Ron Wright, restored a Funk a few years back.  Email me at abcondon@gmail.com and I'll put you in touch.

Joel

Have you tried Jerry Lewis in Delaware yet?  He had quite a few Funk parts and contacts to a lot of people with more.  I'm currently flying a 1948 Funk B85C.  I plan on having it at OSH this year.  Stop by and say Hello.

Happy Landings

John

John, I saw a picture of your Funk. It looks great. I've attached a picture of my project. Do you have any Funk parts?

Joel, If it's possible, could you send me some more pictures of your funk airframe without the fabric on?  I have a funk airframe and other parts that I plan on making a homebuilt out of.  I don't have any of the plywood bulkheads though, and having some pictures and maybe even measurements would be a great help in fabricating some - if that is possible.

Thanks,

Moses
