1920 Dayton-Wright RB-1
The pilot had no forward visibility, but was provided with side windows. Cockpit access was through a hatch in the top of the fuselage.
Dismantled and shipped to France, the RB-1 was flown by Howard Rinehart in the September 28 race, but was forced to withdraw from the competition due to mechanical failure in flight. It was returned to the United States, where it is preserved at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dayton-Wright_Racer
