This is a former Piper COLT.... It was completely refit about 20~ years ago by a VERY FAMOUS BUILDER and founding member of Sun and Fun. ARNOLD R. ALLEN.... Look him up, this plane is actually called out in his Obit!
Arnold was a super nice guy who always was willing to help another pilot / mechanic / builder. He freely interupted his projects to help me fix many of the things that I broke on my Pitts. He was responsible for getting or returning many aircraft to flight status.

He designed, built and STCed hand controls for Pipers for pilots who lost the use of their legs, and gave them away for the price of the material.
