Dave, did you get your answer?
You can but as the FAA still regulate (or have begun re-regulating) the Luscombe, any imported aircraft would now fall under the certificate of airworthiness process rather than Permit, which the current fleet operate under. Thus, given the value of the aircraft, operating under a CofA would make it uneconomic.

That’s my understanding anyway - someone with a better and more comprehensive understanding will no doubt be along soonish...
