George,  There is a Fleetwing Seabird fuselage on display at the aviation museum on Lake Hood in Anchorage Alaska.  I was there in June.  Don't know if they have the rest of the airplane or not.  Hope this helps.  tom Schad  tom@NSB-Gainesville.com

George: Sorry for the belated post, I just noticed this. I have a Fleetwings Seabird in my hangar at ANE (Minneapolis).

Here's one that showed up on Barnstormers:

1937 FLEETWINGS SEABIRDRARE AIRCRAFT FOR SALEFleetwing Seabird project. The airplane is complete less propeller. This is the one of two of the six Seabird aircraft built by Fleetwings still in exsistance. The aircraft has some damage and will require a complete restoration. The Seabird is a unique airplane being constructed of stainless steel. It is a four place amphibian with lovely water manners and plenty of performance from the 285 HP Jacobs engine. The airplane comes with factory drawings to aid in the restoration. The paperwork on the airplane is complete and up to date. Please contact me for additional photos and information. • Contact Fred L.
