I think the Zero is a compilation of Zero parts put together to make one plane. I don't know the actual history behind it but I couldn't find it in a history of Zero survivors...

There is a really odd bulge just above the intersection of the leading edge of the wing and the fuselage. I suspect there is a lot of "not Zero" in the "Zero".

Great set of photos! I really like the "As seen at the bottom of Lake Michigan" displays.

I think the Zero may be one restored by Bob Diemert

It is an ex-Diemert Zero.
The last restoration was done by Black Shadow Aviation in Jacksonville before heading to P-Cola in 1992.
