Murray Champion

IMG_2173 IMG_2174 IMG_2175 IMG_2171 IMG_2172 IMG_2277 IMG_2278 IMG_2279 IMG_2280This is a Murray Champion pedal car. They made 2 versions of this model, a straight side and dip side. This one is the dip side version. This pedal car still belongs to the original owner. He has decided he want to bring it back to its original luster. This version was first introduced in 1951. I am not sure what year this one was made, but I can assure you that it has been well used and loved over its life time. We first started by disassembling the car. Then we sand blasted the parts that would fit in our cabinet. The body will go out to the same blasters that do our full size cars. New wheels, hub caps, tires, steering wheel and decals are all in order here. We are good, but not quite that good. The rest we will recondition and paint as best we can. It should be fully operational when finished. Stay tuned to see the progress.
