No need to swear IT IS an Auster J-1 Autocrat, absolutely nothing to do with Piper at all,

Yes...an Auster J-1 Autocrat with the 90 bhp motor. Note the four straight exhaust stacks. The J1-B Aiglet had/has the 130 bhp Gipsy Major and a muffler assembly. Actually, back then they were marketed as the Taylorcraft "Auster". Refer ads. in "Flight".
