This is what I started with. Piper J3-C65, formerly NC6657H, now SE-IER. Modified with, among other things, Piper Colt tailfeathers (see the dynamic balance of the elevators back there?), strange seats at both positions with red leather, sliding window that slides back and forth, engine cowls attached to the boot cowl with 30+ sheet metal screws with all original attachment points removed (easy annuals... :-), modified exhaust system without cabin heater, nice red carpets, SuperCub tailwheel, too small Ellison carburettor, modified upper and lower doors etc. But it has one modification I like - a 500 hours Continental C90! A perfect match for a J3.

LATER ADDITION: I finally realized that the engine was as bad as the rest of the plane. The guys assembling it had destroyed most of it by doing terrible modifications, liking drilling holes in the crankcase and using old and non-aircraft stuff. Nothing of it can be used and this plane turns out to be the worst buy I have ever made...
