Looks absolutely gorgeous. I see a healthy mix of solid and pull rivets as well. Looks like a manual flap actuator on the overhead. Really amazing. I'm stoked!!!

Look at that tail wheel! Looks like a shock absorber. Sounds like an O320, but could be some other 4 cylinder.

edit: DanH has identified the engine as an IO390.

Default Empennage?

I can't quite tell...looks a bit like a stabilator vs. traditional horizontal stab. and elevator. Anyone else see that?

And Johnson Bar for Flaps on cabin ceiling?
