I wonder why they called it a J3-C65.
And I notice they said the engine was a C65-8.
That's a pretty rare engine since Continental never manufactured one.
Makes me wonder how much they know about J3s.

I think I would overlook that. Folks are looking for this kind of aircraft - no wing tank makes it difficult to go west.

Looks real nice - no wing tank - around the pattern no problem I would think. $50k seems like a decent price for the workmanship shown - allot of work goes into them,

Something's bothering me here: does this plane have a sliding left window or is it missing entirely? I went through the pictures and I don't see it either in the up or down position. Looks like the glass is missing.

Looks beautiful but I wonder what it weighs empty. I got to fly a very pretty J-3 here, lovely paint job, toe brakes, full electric, starter, 0-200, etc, etc., but about 980 empty, so effectively a single seater. I also accepted an invitation to fly a show winner a decade or more ago with its A-65 engine and two up we barely cleared the fence and there were times when we were descending at full power - despite assertions by the instructor that we were within the AUW. I was relieved to land it in one piece (we were no doubt at a high density altitude, the airfield was at 5 100 ft amsl). I therefore much prefer my tatty but light J-3 with its C-90 and a good metal prop.

The confusion for the J3-C65 is because the "C" refers to a Continental A-65.
Piper also made the J3-L with a Lycoming engine and a J3-F with a Franklin engine. 90% sure of this! Merry Christmas everyone!!
