I guess I fail to see the point of this question, sorry. The issue of American antiques and other items, or items from overseas going back over different seas, gets heated debates on some sites, and is pointless. I am involved with antique cars and clocks, and normally stay out of it. It is a sellers right to sell where he or she wants to.
Basic rule is money talks and bull walks.
I practically gave away a very nice Cessna 152 when I needed to let my special issuance run out and fly light sport, and bought a J3. Imagine my surprise a few months later, when the school I sold it to went out of business, to find "my" airplane for sale in Hungary for the equivalent of $43,000!
Well, money talks.
There are hundreds of aircraft per year leaving the U.S.,apparently, although I don't have good numbers, and thousands of other items.
Money.
Sell your aircraft where ever you are pleased to. Not going to get an argument from me, and I hope no one else. It should make no difference to someone else when an owner simply wants to maximize his return, and wringing one's hands and talking about how dreadful the exchange rate is, is not productive.
Now, go fly that amazing new every bolt beauty, but make sure you keep it clean, 'cause they don't want no rust, dust, of bust over there!

Nice looking J3!

Out of curiosity, what covering process/topcoat (color) did you use? Type of paint for the black?

I see a Basic alternator and fuel valve for a wing tank. Do you have a spec list?

Do you have any pictures of the instrument panel?

I know, I know, I'm just full of questions! ;D

P.S. Folks, it is the last album in the photo section.

new ceconite with air tech primer, endura paint (with max amount of flex ajent)endura paint was matched from a can of randolff butrate dope that my dad has( about 40 years old). altinator is a turbine mounted on the cabine(7amp) has a left hand wig tank, the blak strip is 3m stripping as well as the c-fngz so we could remove it with out bothering the paint if it sold out of country.
send me your email and i will send you a complete spec sheet.

p.s. thanks for asking
