See a 1940 Piper J-3 Cub at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1940

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Continental A-65 65HP

The Legend. The J-3 was a much-upgraded Taylor Cub. After the company’s owners parted ways in December 1937 the factory was moved to Lock Haven, PA and reorganized as the Piper Aircraft Company. When first produced, the J-3 was powered by the same Continental A-40 engine used on the E-2 and J-2 but the requirement for dual ignition engines was enacted around that time and the Cub was fitted with other engines, finally settling on the Continental 65 HP engine, an important part of the Cub legend. Today's popularity of the Cub is not simply nostalgia, it is "stick and rudder flying" in its most elementary form.
