Default Challenge 1 1/2 with factory cart and mixer

This is the only Challenge cement mixer outfit that we know of. As pictured in the Challenge number 92 catalog with a 1 1/2 hp Challenge dishpan and Challenge factory cart. The mixer was shopped to Pony Mixer Co in West Bend, WI. I have the original dog house for it but have left it off so that everyone can see the engine. There was at least 2" on concrete on the engine but after about 7 hours of goop hand cleaner and a tooth brush you can see the original paint, pinstripes, and labels. Has anyone else seen one of these out there?

I saw one at a show in Batavia, IL. A fellow Collector in Sandwich IL brought it to the show.

Thanks Steve,

I just realized I dont have a picture of the mixer before the restoration. I am glad that you have pictures of "another collectors" for me to use.
