This airplane, S/N 202, was manufactured under ATC# 22/70 during 1928 by Mono-Aircraft, Inc., Moline, IL. It left the factory with a Velie 17-5 engine (S/N 254) of 65 HP. It was a two-place airplane weighing 1,350 pounds. It sold originally on October 26, 1928 to the Monoplane Aircraft Co., Los Angeles, CA.

It went through a flurry of six sales and transfers between 1928 and 1931, finally coming to rest with Arthur C. Anderson of Phoenix, AZ on February 16, 1931.

NC7326 landed at Tucson at least twice, on Wednesday June 3, 1931 at 5:15 PM and Saturday December 19, 1931 5:10 PM. Both times the airplane was flown by Arthur C. Anderson. Please follow Anderson's link for details around the landings and passengers.

Anderson owned the Monocoupe about a year and a half, selling it on October 29, 1932 to George E. Johnsen of Phoenix, AZ. It went through three more owners through 1948. Its final fate is confusing.

Its final owner, Delbert Warren Fountain of Tucson, AZ, bought it on April 5, 1937. It had accumulated about 936 flight hours. The NASM data sheet for the airplane states that its final disposition was, "wrecked and later burned c. 1939". However, the CAA record states that it had been, "permanently retired as of 4/48". Please, no editorial comments about government efficiency. No further information.
