1957/58 according to Don the original owner. Square tabs on the bowl vents makes this an early Wood Dale. The original legs, triangle and ash pan were black.  Don was an external accountant for Weber Bros Metal Works.  He said this is how he picked up the grill off the assembly line (nothing was altered).  I put on an extra set of wood dale era legs and wheels.  Still have the original legs, wheels and triangle saved.  Will strip the  ash pan back to its original color at some point.

Not too old compared to you guys, but Troy (dwnthehatch), kindly sold me this SJ from 1989 at a more than fair price!  Thanks, Troy!!!!  I had the grates soaking to clean them up in this pic, but suffice to say, the grill is in pristine condition.

My first Weber and currently my oldest, 1978 no code.  I tried to make it look like a pic from that time.



I still have my eye on a Patent Pending model, should have it in a week or two.

I use it every week. I just picked up a performer from Alvin, so the demo might get put away for the winter. I have to preserve it for my kids.

The performer package?!?!? If so, that's a sweet setup

He gave me a special WKC price so I couldn't take the extras too.

Alvin is the man! And in the interest off keeping this thread on-topic here is mine. Late 60's I think.

1972.  The thing i like best about it is the price.  FREE, found curbside.
