Design and development
The Speedster was a high-wing strut-braced monoplane of conventional design with an enclosed cabin and fixed, tailskid undercarriage. Developed during the Great Depression, work was suspended between 1934 and 1937. By the time it was resumed, the ACE Cirrus engine that had powered the two prototypes was out of production, and Speedsters produced in series had Menasco C-4 engines.
- Speedster 6000 - prototypes with ACE Cirrus engines (2 built)
- Speedster 6000M - production version with Menasco C-4 engine (ca 12 built)
