After 11 great years, we for some crazy reason have decided to look for a good home for our little warbird. N55754 is an 1943 L-4B, Piper S/N 10118, and US Army serial number 43-1257. This plane is owned by four cub-loving pilots, one of which is an A&P/IA, who meticulously maintains it. It's based near Houston, TX on a grass runway, and is always hangared, of course. This little beauty always attracts attention wherever she goes.

Here are the current stats (The annual will be signed off on September 1):

Airframe: 1943 Piper J3C-65 (Army L-4B) SN 10118, N55754 TTAF: 4644
Engine: Continental C85-8, TTIS: 4317, TSMOH: 369, TSIRAN (Aug 2016): 102.4
Propeller: Sensenich W72GK-44, TSNEW: 102.4

10.5 gal aux tank in left wing
David Clark battery-operated intercom, with Icom handheld; antenna in fuselage. Radio works very well.
Shoulder harnesses front and rear.
Superflite fabric
Brakes: Scott master cylinders and Cleveland 30-60A disc brake calipers (heel brakes)
Sealed Univair lift struts
Price: $54,000
