I saw a clipped wing with a 150 Franklin. Exp of course. It was a dog.

Heck, they make 150HP C150s, so why not a J3 ??!! A friend has a 250HP[appr] Super Cub, so a lot a things can be done I guess.. That price is kinda scary though.. I didn't think they made J3s in 1947..

Could it be a Banner Tow aircraft or WAS; and is certified under Restricted or Experimental? I have seen one of them Van-Wagner tow airplanes, needless to say it was a J-3 HIGHLY modified. I have no Idea how they got those things approved and still be legal...............

It would shake the tail pretty bad during runup and takeoff, and I would hope that they found a way to move the engine aft to keep the cg and moment of inertia reined in.
