Forgive me if this one has been played.. I've not had time to catch this thread other than haphazardly...

Wow, that didn't take long. so it is probably not worth posting any more web finds.. you guys know your stuff!
I'll try a personal photo.. this was an aircraft my Dad was working on when he passed two years ago:

Nope
rare-er (is that a word?) - more rare.


he was working on a P51-B (although it might be considered a C as it had dual controls?) as well at the time

Is it a variant of P-51? A-36?

You got it! The A-36 Apache.

Kind of a trick question without the wing visible.. it basically was a dive bomber version of the P51 that they did a small run of so it had dive brakes and bomb mounts.

The thing is super rare these days.. it'll be worth big bucks when it is done.

There are currently two flying in existence.

I think I may have seen one of them here at the Anoka Blaine Airport;
Edit: the P-51C, anyway, great aircraft up close:

I believe most of them were built...although a few I'm sure were canceled or never became operational.

Here's more information:
