 It didn't come with the lid in the first picture. The firebox is made of tin and cone shaped like the ash catcher. The seller mentioned these were sold through the sears catalog in the thirties. It was in storage without being moved for a very long time evident by the flat side on the solid rubber wheels. It did however come with an extremely old super thick rusty charcoal grate made by weber that doesn't fit it. It's an early fifties charcoal grate because the sixties weren't nearly as thick. It's about double the thickness and the exact size and same welds as a weber one. I will get a picture of that soon.

Thanks, I had the lid on it to show the size. It's just a little larger than an SJ.

Duke that's awesome.  I have some 30's Sears catalogs on a disk, I'll look through them and see if it's in there.  Very cool!
