1947 Modified : No Piper Type: Piper 1947 Piper PA12 Super Cruiser 160 HP Lycoming 0 320TTAF.
Awesome plane! I"ve owned this Super Cruiser for 2.5 years and it"s been great. Put a lot into it to make it a great performing ranch plane. Always hangarded, very fast taildragger with an average ground speed around 110mph but still has very good STOL performance. Motor is amazing, no leaks whatsoever and that"s coming from a person who has flown with many old Lycoming engines and knows how common it is for leaks.I have three cylinders primed so it makes for extremly easy cold weather starting. Spin on oil filter makes oil changes super easy. Glass is very clear. Tires have a ton of life left. Overall this aircraft will make someone a dependable work horse or weekend plane.
