No Damage History

Which might mean it was never dinged, gound-looped, flipped over, run into by a snow plow, or otherwise "damaged". At least not in the logs. What is the definition of damage, anyway?

Many repairs have been done on aircraft where there has been no paperwork or entry in the logs, so take it with a grain of salt. I know of a Swift which made a take-off with temp too hot and runway too short for power available, and crash landed on the inclined ground across a slight depression off the end of the runway. Both gear driven up through the wings. Aircraft hidden in a T-hangar until repaired, and then put up for sale. We looked at it - nothing in the logs at all. They didn't know we knew about the accident; they gave the wrong answers, and my friend did not buy the aircraft.

NDH Important if buying a C-210, Baron, Lear, etc. Doesn't mean much when referring to a 60+ year old J-3 Cub. GUP

I agree with Original1. Most of these small planes have had some sort of damage, reported or not, over the years. My 172 had damage history and it didn't stop me from buying it. I have owne/flown it for 23 years and it hasn't fallen out of the sky yet.

I believe this one is a very good Cub. If I didn't buy mine, I would've bought this one.

I'm a friend of the man that rebuilt it in 2003...excellent work. Has built several airplanes including a very fine L-4. It has remained at that same airport ; and always hangared, and not flown much, by the owner who is a professional pilot. I have not seen it up close for about three years but I bet it is still a fine Cub.

That's one you can buy over the phone ;D A 2nd party endorsement from Huston with knowledge of the integrity of the fellow who did the work is pretty strong. If I were looking for a Cub I would look at the pictures ,make a few phone calls ,offer a little less FIRM and send em a 5000.00 deposit to hold it for a few days until I could get there. The ORGINAL 65 is a BIG plus. ;) The only neg I see on that Cub is the metal prop. :( That's an easy swap out That Cub will not be forsale very long, even in this economy ;)
