    I vote for a one-off.

    Based on the flat sides and square corners, it looks metal skinned. Might can find out what it is through the FAA registry.

    Some resemblance to a Baby Ace but more differences than similarities.

    Fuselage looks Baby Aceish, but gear looks spring steel on the farm pic vs this Ace.
    FAA search for the blurry number on the tail (N6379?) says 1974 Bowling X-Wind.
    No hits in the inter-web on that.

    Could it be a Citabria Pro?
