    It seems that after Ford quit building airplanes around 1930, they sold back the tooling to its original designer, Mr. Stout. Well, in 1985, two Bushmasters were built - essentially a Trimotor with a higher (stand-up-in-it-able) cabin and a taller tail. It was intended to be used as a bush plane in the tundra and other such places. One owned by Tri Motor Tours used to fly out of Long Beach Airport.  It seems they are not in business anymore and I don't know what happen to the plane they had.
