$3 garage sale score!
« on: October 07, 2019, 03:00:29 PM »
Iím on lunch taking a cruise of my local Letgo offerings and I spot this:


Curious, I reach out to the seller and get a near instant response!  Itís available.  Itís a garage sale from the previous weekend and heís trying to unload stuff.  I leave work a little early and itís only 20 minutes away, too.  This is too good to be true.  I did have to get cash because I didnít have any.....lol. 

Anyway, it turns out it a patent pending Easterner!   Itís in good shape and needs some tlc.  It has some interesting wheels, or it least it doesnít correspond to age guide.  I figured it would have rubber tread but it has 73-76 wheels.  They are definitely Weber wheels.

Awesome pickup!  Maybe @Craig can help shed some light on the wheel situation.

Congrats on a great find!

This grill helps shed some light on something @Craig and I were talking about a while back.  There are two different versions of these wheels, one has straight line treads (like yours) and the other has a center line in the tread (see below). Craig and I had come to the conclusion that the wheels like yours must be the earlier version of that style wheel. Your patent pending is most likely a later '72 that got wheels from '73.



 
Wanted: Burgundy 18"

Thanks for the feedback!   Thatís a very logical conclusion.  Itís the first time Iíve seen wheels like these.
