I was talking to my dad about the planes he was familiar with as a kid, this one came up as one that his dad had for a short while. Anyone familiar with it?

that fits the description he gave. Grampy was one of 16 or so farmers who helped to start the Santa Paula airport in 1930. He and dad built a H-28 sometime after then.

looks like the L5 used as hospital evac aircraft, ww2....but they used an old Franklin engine....
