Chris-Teena Mini-Coupe

Construction of the Mini-Coupe began in 1972 and ended with its completion in 1974. It was originally powered by a 1600 VW engine which was replaced in 1992 with a 2100 Revmaster (VW) engine donated by Paul Metzger of Portland, Oregon.

The Johnson Chris-Tena Mini-Coupe is built from a kit manufactured and furnished by the Chris Tena Aircraft Company of Hillsboro, Oregon. The kit includes all components necessary for construction of the aircraft body up to the firewall, pre-cut and pre-bent.
