Really cool. Someone is producing the old ash pans on here. I don't remember if they made any 26" though. I believe the thread is in the Member Sales section. Otherwise, finding a pan will probably be a challenge.

Really cool grill. The old 26ers never come up here. Congrats!

 I reinstalled the handle using the factory aluminum semi-tubular rivets.

I don't know much about these older 26ers. This one has a flat bottom matching the flat top. I was told these were spun lids and obviously you can see that this bowl was also spun as it has the spun swirls.

What is the flat spot on the bottom of the bowl???

Both my 26"ers, Misty and the ZZ Top that I passed onto Vwbuggin64, have that flat spot on the bottom.  Agree with Smokin Performer that it probably has something to do with the manufacturing process of the flat tops being spun.

Wow,,,,, another fantastic day with another  $35 26er and this one is a Brownie.
Includes the grates and ash pan that are inside grill.
  My nephew was an hour away and grabbed this for me. I won't be able to pick it up from him for a couple weeks. I'm excited...

Epic.  Scoring two flat tops in one week, both for $35.  And the Chief is a 69-70 Pat Pending. That has got to be one for the record books.

Awesome chief!
Once I found mine, I've hardly used my WSM. They make great smoking machines!

@WNC I agree those old 3 wheel 26ers are awesome smoking grills
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

I need to build a shelf in my garage before a start searching for kettles again. I'm out of floor space. I better not find a Ranch near me or I'll be in trouble.
  I'm switching over to SJ's for a while.
Found this mid 70's faded black SJ for $10 two days ago. It's a disease..lol

 


And that's how I picked it up.... Already Clean
