The wheel pants are interesting. I thought the Staggerwing was a
retractable.

Staggerwing


According to Wikipedia, the early prototype models had fixed gear.

"Fixed gear prototype made first flight on November 4, 1932.

By 1934, Beechcraft had designed and built four models. They were the 17R (420
hp Wright engine); the A17F (690 hp Wright engine); the A17FS (710 hp Wright
engine); and the B17L (225 hp Jacobs engine). All were fixed gear models with
the exception of the B17L, which had a pneumatically retractable undercarriage.
Of the three models, the B17L proved best suited to meet the market demands, and
became the first production model."

Thanks for the info.
