Dear S-78,

Dear S78,
I am not sure without a tiny bit of research as to what the differences are; not as easy as say a B-17 D from a B-17G to see.

It would likely be an early Lodestar.

The photo shows, what I believe to be, the oil cooler inlet at the back of the engine cowling, where as most of the later Lodestars had it at the top-front of the engine cowling.

Still, it must be considered that many of the Lodestars were converted, reconverted, re-engined, etc. So it is quite a challenge telling one from another with just one photo.

Judging by the large scoop on the left side of the engine cowling, I would concur.
