Picture of girl with Challenger outboard

Post by clarkieo » Sun Dec 25, 2011 8:55 am

Recently I saw a picture of a pretty Chris-Craft model with a 5.5.hp Challenger outboard.( she had on a Skipper hat and bathing suit and was posed driving the motor) Anybody know where I can find a copy of this ad? Motor was in production from 49 - 53. Thanks

I saw that photo in real form at the Mariners Museum and they will reproduce it for you.. Regarding the ad have you checked the archives here?

Thank you all for your help. I knew I saw that picture somewhere and now have a 8 1/2 x 11 to grace my restored Challenger and Commander
