Here is a good resource to look up civil aircraft registration numbers between years 1919 & 1939. It is where I found yours.

The owner/builder is building the entire aircraft from scratch. He has formed every piece of metal, and plexiglass for this aircraft. If I remember correctly there are no more examples of this plane in the world, so this one is truly unique. It is being built by a friend of a friend of mine, and should be ready to fly any day now. We rode out for the first engine start up, and it went very well. The Beech behind the plane was the donor for the engines on this one. Bonus points if you get the builder's name. It is out there.



A little more info on the builder. He is known in the warbird community for converting yak 11 aircraft to yak 3s. I believe he even got to the point where he had a frame jig, and was building them from scratch with Merlin engines. Pretty cool hangar to check out!
It must be John Garric's Potez 63 .

Yup that's him. He is in interesting fellow to talk to. People come and go and he barely stops working. I am hoping to get some pictures of that plane in the air soon.

It went from one French manufacturer name to another French State run manufacturer name.

You were looking in the right place! Although not called a Dassault.
