 Comments: In 1935 the Taylor Aircraft Company decided to improve their Cub line of which were angular and austere-looking and initially had an unglazed cabin area.

The new J-2 had rounded-off wing tips, a similarly "rounded" fin and rudder framed up and fabric-covered separately from the fuselage structure, enclosed cabin and wider Goodyear "airwheel" tires, a special low-pressure variety of aircraft landing gear tire pioneered in1929 that resembled a later tundra tire in general appearance and proportions. Powered by a 37 hp Continental A-40-3 engine appeared in October 1935 and the type certificate was issued on 14 Feb 1936. From Sept 1936 the engine changed to a 40 hp Continental A-40-4. 

In 1935 C.G. Taylor left the company to start another aircraft manufacturer which would become Taylorcraft. William T. Piper bought Taylor's shares in the company.
