Please see case #3 for the details on this aircraft.
Believe this to be N3580, 44-74602 when owned by Jack Hovey. It is ex N35N and carried race # 2.

This is Jack Hovey's 44-74602 N3580 in its former paint scheme. Hovey is currently one of the guys who has owned his 51 for the longest period of time. This being since 1967. Two other long-standing 51 owners are George Perez (N51GP) and Mike Bertz (N11636).
I'm not the P-51 expert like a lot of others I see post here, but it kinda looks like Jack Hovey's Mustang before it got the desert camo paint job.
