The fourteenth in my Frankenlighter Series, this Champ is an Austrian-made flip-top, windproof pocket lighter. I'd guess it was made in the late 1950s or early 1960s. then hand painted by me last weekend using a vivid, Easter-inspired palette. I've coated the spray enamel design with several coats of clear lacquer, so the artwork should withstand reasonable pocket wear. The Champ works just like a Zippo, with one significant enhancement. Its wind guard can be raised (see photo #3) -- allowing full access to its wick. This is a huge convenience, making it much easier for the owner to clean the wind guard and replace its wick as needed.

This Champ has been fully restored and works great. It is fine for everyday use and will be shipped with a flint and without fluid. (Please do not store this lighter with the flint though, as it will deteriorate and become impacted over time.) I've cleaned spark wheel and wind guard, installed a new Zippo wick, and repacked the fuel chamber to ensure this Champ is in good working condition. I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this lighter. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
