Greatest Weber Day EVER!!! More PICS added Page 2!
« on: February 05, 2019, 11:15:31 AM »
Checking the usual classifieds last night and I logged into Facebook Market Place and was getting ready to do my typical searches (Weber, Webber, Charcoal Grill, Grill, Asador...) when I glance at the first couple of listings that pop up organically and see a fire pit table listed below for $30.  I know I've seen one before and I instantly know what it is, but couldn't remember what it was called.  So I contacted the seller and she said she would put it by her front door for me to pick up in the morning and that I could put the money under the mat. 

Picked it up today!!

Then I checked the classifieds once more and came across this 18" Lime on offer up and it was only a few more minutes down the road.  So I picked it up too. 

Pretty excited.  Not sure what I am going to do with the Flamenco but Im thinking full restore with professional sandblasting and powder coating on the table, not sure what to do with the grill.  Its in absolutely perfect condition besides the faded paint, no dents whatsoever. 

What do you guys think I should do.  Can I get it the porcelain enamel refinished?

Had to share!!

Wowza.   1963 Flamenco.   Congratulations.  First one I've seen outside Weber's 50 year timeline.  I would leave the kettle just like it is.  Just like collector cars, they are only original (survivors) once.  What size is the kettle BTW? Look to be smaller than an 18".        @Troy   @Craig

Congratulations! The only one I ever remember seeing was in one of those old Weber grilling newsletters. I think it was somewhere in northern Wisconsin. I often wonder how close I have been to that thing and not known it was sitting in back of someone's cottage as I drove by.

Holy smokes!  An amazing day of scores!  Congrats!

So so very neat.  I see the bowl of the flamenco has an ash catcher like the galley-ques.  We definitely need lots more photos to perv!

I wonder if the table was also made by Woodard.

@Cellar2full

Appears to be.  In the third photo, you can see it has the same ash catcher system as a Galley-Que.

@azbeeking -  I sent you a PM.  Take some detailed photos and PM them to me.   This Flemenco needs to be featured in the Grill Gallery, ponto!

While that Flamenco is cool, I love the lime! That's on my need/want list! Great scores all the way around!

Thatís a cool grill. Itís the third flamenco we know of in the wild. Yes, they have the Galley Que ash catcher.
