Looks like a nice cub, I prefer the wood spars and the metal started in '46 if I'm not mistaken. And also, were there J3's manufactured in '45 or were they all L4's?
How much time on the engine?

Hey Guys, I can't answer any of those questions but Jim can at [email protected] All I know is it is a decent J3. I knew the previous owner who traded it in on a new S2 Sport Cub.

It's an L-4J. Look at the 3/4 shot of the entire airplane, and you can see the channel for the rearmost window through the fabric. I don't know when production was changed over to J-3s again. I know they were producing L-4Js into '46.

I saw that the key was in the upper right wing root. Is that standard practice? It seems inconvenient, and possibly a hazard. But I've only flown a PA-11 and not a J-3.

Jim, tells me that an hour after listing the J3 Friday on the CC website they had a deal working so it looks like it may be sold! A buyer looking for a solid flyer and not worried about show time.
