By tail number, this is XCG-13 (not A) test article by Northwestern Aeronautical. WACO built two XCG-13 articles. Ford and NW each built XCG-13 after that. All were "tail draggers" with a smaller cabin and lower (for tail dragging) rear fuslesage. The YCG-13A and CG-13A were tri-cycle gear, higher stance rear fuselage.
