    Sitting outside on a farm in Indiana.

    Looks kinda like an old Pitcairn autogyro?

    No, tail is all wrong as is the cockpit for the Pitcairn. This looks like a conventional airplane of some sort (minus the wings).

    Or a biplane, can't tell if there's a lower wing attachment behind the sawhorse.

    Sitting outside for how long? I'd venture a guess... I don't know what it once was, but now it looks suspiciously like ex-airplane scrap.
    Measure twice, cut once...
    scratch head, shrug, shim to fit.

    Looks like the wheels are 8 feet apart...

    Wheels? What wheels? There is no gear or wheels in the pic. There is a tail wheel though.

    It does have wide wheels.
    Wife is visiting her parents in Indiana, and sent me another pic.
    Im new to the EAA forums. I think I'm posting pics properly, but it's fighting me.
    I had a "Preview" button on original post, but now I don't see one.
    I'll hit the "Post Quick Reply" button and hopefully the pic gets added.

    I think RonW has a pretty good guess. I think it's an Ace D, from the tail (some of the other models have a round tail).
