I restored this 1946 J3 Cub around 1998 under the supervision of SDAir  with Scott Draper and his father Herb.  Most of it is original, but I added Univair sealed struts and STC'd shoulder harnesses during the rebuild.  The nose cowl, boot cowl, and wing leading edges are also new from Univair.  The new propeller was added a few years ago.  In June, 2004, I was able to buy an A65 engine that had been removed from a plane in the 60's then "pickled" and stored in Arizona for the next 40 years.  It had 285 hours on it since new and is now mounted on this plane.  I have all original logs for the airplane and the engine.  This is quite likely one of the "youngest" old Cubs being flown in the world today.
