1953, and it was a gentleman named REED, who holds the STC. Essentially, he cut the wing back to the same dimensions as the Vagabond. Really neat plane to fly, on 85 hp.
The J-2 and J-3 are identcal airframes. It was the E-2 that was a parasol, from the factory. The key difference to the J-2 was it was constructed from 1020 steel, as opposed to the J-3 being built of 4130 chrome moly. This is why you are restricted to 65hp max, in a J-2.
And, you didn't have to "Google" it!

You are the kid that did your school work with your arms wrapped tightly around your desk so none of the other kids might "steal" your work. Then wondered why you just never had any friends
I always wondered when the "clipped" wing cub was actually born and who did the first full scale version?
Oh I guess I should go google that too
