John Livingston won 41 air races in this modified, clipped-wing aircraft which was originally a Monocoupe 110. He sold it to Jack Wright uf Utica, NY and it took part in the London to Melbourne Air Race flown by Wright and John Polando. They had to abandon at Calcutta. Aircraft sponsored by the maker of the Baby Ruth candybar. (The company denied that the bar was named after famous baseball player Babe Ruth.) Interestingly, the swimmer, actress and aviatrix Ruth Wells Barron was the plane's next owner. Unfortunately she was killed in it on 3 July 1936 after it caught fire over Omaha, Nebraska.
