Ray Chaplins 1946 Ercoupe Sold!

Below is a short video of Ray Chaplin's Ercoupe leaving Whiteplains after being sold. It was sold to a gentleman that is going to restore it. It was flown to KBNL Barnwell airport that is 42 nm south of Whiteplains. The first attempt was aborted after fuel was spotted coming out of the center gas tank. The second attempt was fowled by the engine sputtering to a stop after giving it full power. A quick check didn't find anything so an attempt was made to start the engine, but low voltage didn't allow the starter to swing the prop more then two times. After a jump start, it started, and he was able to take off.
