This auction is for a complete set of 22 prints for the  STEWART HEADWIND 1 PLACE AIRCRAFT. They are in like new condition and have never been used. These plans were produced by 

The Stewart Headwind JD1HW1.7 and SAC-1VW is a single-seat high-wing tube-and-fabric construction homebuilt aircraft. The first Headwind was flown on March 28, 1962. It was one of the first aircraft to fly in the United States using a VW engine. The prototype flew with a Huggins VW conversion. To use a standard propeller, a patented PRSU (propeller speed reducing unit) was developed to keep the engine RPM high and propeller RPM at its optimum speed.

The design was inspired by the Demoiselle by Alberto Santos-Dumont. The fuselage is triangular sections of welded tube steel covered in fabric.  A Volkswagen air-cooled engine was the only engine specified for this model, however many examples exist with alternate engine installations.

Headwinders,

I've just completed the design of a detachable cold weather enclosure for the Headwind and it'll be included in the sets of Headwind prints. If you already have a set of prints and would like to have the new enclosure prints, the price is $20.00 sent post paid

Don,
If you click on the actual URL for the videos and watch them on Youtube rather than embedded in the original email I sent you can see that the videos are on Tim Stover's channel who in fact is the owner of that Headwind. I am sure a comment on any of those videos will establish contact with Tim.
