This is the classic 1950s Bally's kiddie ride " Ride The Champion", that will transport cowpokes young and old, on an imaginary horseback journey to the Old West. Commonly encountered in front of grocery stores, the original ride was created by the Bally Manufacturing Corporation and named after the favorite horse of popular television cowboy Gene Autry. "Champion" is a very collectible treasure of the good old days.
The ride is in working order. The coin box has been updated with a solid state timer and the coin box has keys. The coin box accepts 25 cent coins. There is a free- play switch inside the box to override the need for coins.
This ride is over 50 years old, therefore there are some imperfections, such as some dings on the base and chipped paint. There are minor hairline cracks in the paint on "Champion's" body, and scuffs on the hoofs,but not distracting. All in all, since it has not been through any recent restoration, it is in excellent condition. The motor sounds smooth and the gears sound fine.
I try to give accurate descriptions on my Ebay listings and my feedback is 100%.
Please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions.
If one was so motivated to tackle some restoration on this ride, such as custom paint job, tweek up the base with plexiglass sides and new decal which could be purchased on Ebay, this could more than double the value of this ride, making it a real treasure.
The Body of "Champion" is Made of fiberglass, and "Champion'" rests on a steel base. Plugs into regular 120 volt AC outlet. Dimensions are approx. 48" H x 30" W x 60" L. (400 lbs.)
The ride is available for local pickup only. If you live within a reasonable distance, arrangements might be made for me to deliver.
