Remarks by Dave
: "When Piper first introduced the Super Cub in
1949, they had a whole lot smaller engines than what are now in most
Super Cubs. The first engines available were either a 90 hp
Continental C90 or a 108 hp Lycoming O-235. It was not until much
later, that larger engines were finally available as options. In 1952
the 135 hp Lycoming O-290-D2 engine was an option, and by 1955 the
familiar 150 hp Lycoming O-320 was finally available."
