I need help identifying and possibly getting an estimate on how much this --> http://imgur.com/a/PIJB1ZQ plane would sell for.
For some background, I inherited this plane from my grandfather who bought it from a friend of his. I have no place to store it so I am trying to sell it. It would be sold with the trailer included.
I am a fish out of water in this field, I know next to nothing. I posted it onto reddit but no conclusions were really reached. There is no paperwork with it, and it is quite old and ratty, so I can't imagine it's worth much.

Not a real old plane, looks like an ultralight made to look sorta like a Piper Cub.

Looks very much like a J-3 "Kitten" or an N3 Pup, from Preceptor in N.C. (out of business...for reason). Looks a bit weathered, how long has it been outside? Will most likely need recover on all surfaces and an engine rebuild. If you could find a mechanic near you, he would be able to inspect and give you some better info. There are a couple of similar airplanes around here, the owners seem to like them. The J-3 is a time proven design.

It has unique ailerons that have me stumped.

Agree, the full length, tapered ailerons should make it easy to identify whether or not it's from plans/kit or a one-off.

If it's in American Fork, that is between home and work for me. I could check it out if somebody wants a local look. I haven't done any aircraft wood or welding work, so not super qualified.

This is interesting! This airplane was advertised on KSL. That ad is gone and now it showed up on Facebook. It looks like its in a different location now.
