Morrisey 2000


The only Nifty ever built had a fabric cover, wooden wings, and a 115 hp engine, built in the late 1940s.
Bill Morrisey adapted the design to aluminum, installed a 150-hp engine and built 10 Morriseys.

Shinn Engineering acquired full manufacturing rights, tooling and spares, and turned out 35 Shinn 2150 airplanes.
