Piper J-4A Cub Coupe

See a 1941 Piper J-4A Cub Coupe at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1941

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Continental A-65 65HP

Piper's first airplane with side-by-side seats, it was Piper's response to Taylorcraft's side-by-side design. It is an evolution of the J-3 Cub and was Piper’s first airplane with a fully cowled engine. Its performance lagged so Piper piled on extras that were normally extra cost options. That it was popular is beyond doubt; Joseph Juptner remarked that "it sold like penny candy near a schoolyard." It was so popular on the West Coast that it was shipped there by the boxcar load. One pilot remarked on its ease of getting in and out writing, “It doesn’t require a short course in yoga.” The onset of WWII ended production of the Cub Coupe after building some 1,250 of all versions.
