Two toned kettle, faded colour, or just a mismatching lid?
« on: January 10, 2021, 07:30:52 PM »
Saw this on my local Nextdoor for free. I was going to grub it as I responded first, but later decided to pass since there is no more space to store it. But the two toned colour is interesting. I saw the article here on WKC about "The Traveler" two toned kettle, but that one has wooden handles and no wheel or triangle. This one, however, is not the same. According to the aging guide, the wheel style, handle, believe to be a 62~64 model, the lid "looks" silver or possible green. Is it just a mismatching lid or it's some kind of million dollars collector's item?

The lid & bowl look to be weathered black pieces from two different kettles[emoji848].  I have to say...I woulda grabbed it whether I had room or not.  Those parts, especially the intact steel/rubber wheels are worth the trip alone

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

I didn't get it. I have rescued 5 kettles so far, clean them up and fix them up and just give away to friends that just started grilling. But all my friends got weber now(thanks to me), not sure what I am going to do with an extra one if I do get it, and no space in the backyard for it. Was thinking maybe I can turn it into a planter, but that would be a waste for such nice vintage kettle. I hope the guy who got it would have more use for it than I do.

   The Weber gods saved it from being turned into a planter.
