    Detailed Description

    For sale: 1943 Piper Cub L-4B Grasshopper. This L4 has undergone a total ground up restoration several years ago after which it was flight tested and put in storage. It has only been flown approx. 6 hours since restoration was completed. Some of the added improvements done more recently include a new fuel tank, new sealed wing struts, new safety harnesses, and the addition of vintage radio equipment (non-functioning).
    
    Because this L4 was actively engaged in WW2 duty (fully documented) while stationed at the US Air Force camp at Fort MaCoy,WI. It was decided that the rebuild would be as authentic as possible and no expenses spared to make this happen.The result was an authentic museum quality vintage 'warbird.' 
    
    This L4 is the the last remaining aircraft from the owner's modest collection which is being sold off due a combination of age and health factors. Because the L4 has always been stored in a year round climate controlled hangar, it has not been exposed to the harsh elements of climate that can cause extensive ageing of plexiglass, upholstery and the fabric covering the aircraft. Currently there are fewer than 40 of these original military version L4's still flying making this an increasingly rare 'warbird' which will only increase in value with time. It is priced 'to sell' for $49,000 USD. 
    (Note: As long as the listing is active, the L-4 is still available)
