Here's a Champ with a change or two that make it a great value.  It came to me with no speaker, and the Made in China replacement surprised the heck out of me - it sounds good, probably better than the original.  It is a 4 ohm speaker, which is correct for a Champ.  The speaker wire is not original to the amp.

The volume pot was changed out before I got the amp.  The original is included.  The original knob wouldn't fit on the new pot, so that knob is changed.

Overall, this Champ sound solid and works great.  With a thorough cleaning it would turn out to be a really nice looking piece.
