It looks a lot like a late 40's Kenskill to me, with 1935 Ford wire wheels. When I sold my 1947 Modernaire it also had 1935 Ford wire wheels on it. I believe that 1935 Ford wires were the only ones that came in a 16" size, earlier ones were 17, 19 or 21". I had the oldest known registered teardrop for a few years. It was a 1936 homebuilt originally registered in California in 1936. There may be older ones but I have never seen or heard of one that had the original documented date.
