Fleeteood Good Friday
« on: April 14, 2017, 04:52:51 AM »
 Saw this generic titled listing for a "black charcoal grill" on FBmarketplace yesterday that had been listed for over one month with a $50 price tag. To me it looked like a MBH 22" but then I counted the triangle bars and saw it had four like seen on the 26ers.  Then those waffle tread wheel pattern stuck out. Could this be a Pat. Pending Fleetwood I asked myself.
Made the call and just had to go take a look for myself.
I'm new but learning the Weber lingo. So I also noticed the classic caddywompas...

🤞Hope you can snag it🤞

It's was listed last year too. Seller is a scrapper & wasn't the easiest to communicate with. Asked repeatedly for pics of the grates & got a "their there".

Sorry I messed up the title. Should read "Fleetwood"

Missing the ash pan, one leg socket is no longer attached and was screwed in place. Dent on lid.
It was little rough but I decided to grab this 26er for $35 since I've never owned one before. Looking forward to repairing this grill and cooking on it.
  Not sure what year this is. Looks like a mid 70's as its not the earlier Pat. Pending but does have the plastic wheel seen on the early 70's models.
 

  Maybe a good candidate for a mini Ranch Kettle conversion.

I noticed it has a flat area on the center of lid and bowl. What style kettle is this called?

Congrats on grabbing that Fleetwood.  Should be a fun project and a great cooker!

As for the style, these are generally referred to as Flat-top 26er's.
Wanted: Burgundy 18"

Nice find!
Congratulations, you'll love smoking on these. 26er three wheelers make great smoking machines

I concur !! Grate find
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Thanks. I've been wanting a new 26" but this older model will do.
 Rusted leg sockets but bottom of bowl is solid. I'll read up on how to repair these.

I have the same Fleetwood. You'll love cooking one it. They have so much room.
When you heat it up, spray a little Pam on it and that will give it a nice black sheen.
Congrats!

$35 well spent!!!  The wheels, in that good of condition, alone are worth $35.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. These wheels are the only best part on this 26er. The caddywumpus didn't even cause any uneven wear on the tread.lol

 These early 70's Wheels are too clean to have been on this faded black kettle all its life. Maybe they've been replaced. IDK
