Piper Colt?

What is that?
The Colt was a two seat TriPacer without flaps and did not have a window behind the door.
Built in the 1961-62 era as a stop gap trainer until the Cherokee production got sorted out.
I owned a 1957 Tri-Pacer. It is a 4 place 150hp aircraft covered in cotton fabric. It was named the Tri-Pacer since this was Piper's first nosewheel airplane having three wheels. The nosewheel was a hit and outsold the Pacer 6 to 1. The Tri-Pacer has the nick-name as "the flying milk stool".

I belive it is a PA22-108 Colt. I soloed in one of these at Elmendorf AFB in 1962. Had 2 in the flying club at the base. $8.00 an hour wet. How about those days.
Agree with Joel. it's a 'standard' Tripacer. The Colt didn't have flaps - the photo clearly shows flaps extended. The Colt also didn't have the window behind the rear doorpost.
