    Detailed Description

    This low-time J-3 Cub was a complete ground-up restoration in 2009, and was further restored in 2014 using the Superflite process by the Piper Cub restoration experts at “Long’s Aircraft Service” of Coleman, TX. It is one of the nicest Cub’s we have ever had in inventory! It sports a low-time 90-horsepower STC’d Continental C-90-12F engine, fresh Prop Overhaul, and is equipped with the STC’d 12-Gallon Aux Tank, giving this bird a 22-Gallon Fuel Capacity. STC’d Disc Brakes, Gross Weight Increase, Lifetime Fabric, Locking overhead 'Ram-mount' for an iPad, and Super Cub Trim System. An immense amount of money was invested in making this a like new airplane. Without a doubt one of the nicest, no-excuses, pristine Piper J-3 Cubs available in the world!
