I bought this airplane for my son but didn't realize the mods that were done by a previous owner to make it possible for him to fly solo from the front seat (PA11 rear seat and PA18 baggage compartment and front seat mod) made it cramped for us to fly from the back seat, which we like to do. (Now with a standard front seat - OK to fly from back). It has a great baggage compartment - the rear seat back folds down so you can carry a duffel or fish or game (or even baggage). The airplane has approximately 6600 hours total airframe time, approx 250 hours since major on the A75, recent Slicks and new Grove brakes just installed on the 8.00x4 wheels. Sealed struts. It flies really nicely. Leading edges are nice and straight. The airplane was owned by an aviation family in north Georgia and kept in their climate controlled hangar for many years but was rarely flown. The Army officer I bought it from was looking for a PA18 and found one right after he bought this airplane and I happened to be looking for a Cub at the same time. I'm looking for a J3 with a standard layout or will undo what was done if we don't sell this one. PM me for more details.
