Remarks This aircraft is one of only 3 WACO (“ Weaver Aircraft Company Ohio”) model OEC
aircraft ever built in Troy, Ohio and the only surviving example. The 1932 Model OEC was the first WACO Cabin Biplane to be designed using a single compression tube between the wings instead of the steel flying wires commonly in use. It owes much of its lineage to the Model F two-place open biplane of 1930-31, which was developed to enclose the cockpits and add a rear bench seat. NC 12467 is unique in having been factory fitted with a 16usg auxiliary fuel tank in the starboard lower wing and a hand operated wobble pump to transfer fuel to the two upper wing tanks. It was delivered to its first owner, H C Lippiatt in California in May 1932. An Englishman from Blackburn, Mr Lippiatt became a WACO dealer in 1932 and the aircraft was used as a demonstrator for several months. Originally equipped with a Kinner C5 5-cylinder radial engine of 210hp and Hamilton Standard metal propeller, it has spent its entire flying life on the West Coast of the USA. In 1943, it was put into storage with 771 hours on the clock. The Kinner was not a popular engine choice, being less smooth in operation than the 7 cylinder engines available at the time. Sometime in the 1950s, a period when the aircraft was not airworthy, it was re-engined with a 220hp Continental W-670 7-cylinder radial engine but it is not believed to have flown with this particular engine. However, the change of power plant meant that the model was re-designated UEC, joining the fleet of 45 of this model built up to February 1933.
