Default Heath Baby Bullet

Does anyone here know of any surviving example(s), airworthy or not, of the
1929 Heath Baby Bullet?

Juan, the January 2005 FAA Registration Database shows one Heath Baby Bullet,
but it's got a 1994 manufacture date. N6784. Same database shows 351 aircraft
manufactured in 1929, only one Heath (Super Parasol).

Guy I met a few years back is building one:

The author says that the 1994 one I mention above is the only one he knew about.
The article includes his email address; you might contact him.

You might also contact Chet Peak, the author of the book, "The Heath Story."

I think I had the year wrong, the original was built in 1928 and was NX6784!
This one is Rod Gehrlein's, apparently the best built example of the
aircraft. Smart thinking to use the same N number as the original, anyone
searching the database would find _his_ Baby Bullet.

I did, he answered already.

Got an email?

Thank you.
