1937 Taylor “Cub” J–2

The squared off look of previous models was eliminated by a nicely rounded rudder, the rounded wing tip tended to shorten the span, and the turtle–back was raised up to meet the wing, thus eliminating the parasol look and fashioning the “Cub” into a true cabin airplane.

In 1937 only 658 of the J–2's were built because of tragic fire at the plant. This was still a phenomenal amount of airplanes to be built and delivered by one company during the post–depression period.
