1953 Champion 400H
Hermann Holbein, creator of the Champion CH2 sold the rights to build a 250cc and a 400cc microcar to "The Champion Motor Company" in June of 1951.
Rumors of financial trouble and possible bankruptcy caused suppliers to become concerned that they would not be paid for the car parts they produced. A business deal involving the owner of Delta Refrigerator of all things helped and eventually the production of Microcars continued through no less than Three factories over Three years.
Introduced in 1951, the Champion 400 had very modern, nearly symmetrical lines and a 398cc ILO 2 cylinder motor.
This symmetry was passed on to the side windows which where semi-circular and pivoted down into the door.
Minor changes in 1953 incorporated a similar engine but one made by Heinkel, this model was designated the Champion 400H.
