Looks like an ingenious kid turned his originally non-engine powered Thimble Drome Champion into an engine powered prop rod. Looking at the Babe Bee, looks to have probably been done in the late 50s.

The way I look at it, if something was modified or "ruined" when it was fairly new, it's no where near as bad if someone modified or "ruined" an antique or collectible today.

Oh, it's still very cool and I'd have no problem displaying that as is on a shelf.

You guys are too nice. I agree with Mark, time to get out the spanking machine. Smile

That said, I would love to own it and keep it as is. Shows ingenuity and I am fascinated by it.

Looking closely it doesn’t appear to be anything that’s not fixable. Maybe it will go for a for a fair price.

Oh I don’t know to be honest. Just looked like a seller pic. I assumed....and you know the saying about that!


Edit: Yeah it’s on Ebay....
