Me too - I don't have a 140, but I could get one for such a trade!
What kind of airplane do you now own?

I'd be more than happy to sell my C-140 to you. That way I could make a cash deal for a J-3.

The Cessna 140 is an economical cross country airplane. However, I have over 24,000 hours of "cross country" flying so I'm looking for some basic fun flying again. The first airplane I owned was a '46 J-3 and wish I still had it.

I bought the J-3 back in 1969 for $2,500 and sold it in 1973 for $3,500 to get my ATP rating. Oh Well!!!
