The fund of my life ...Weber Imperial Wagon
« on: May 15, 2018, 07:14:07 AM »
Hello you addicted Weber, I have seen such a barbecue before I thought when I saw the sale ad on FB Marketplaces. But I could not find anything on google until I saw him here at WKC in the old 1983 catalog ...
BE A WINNER IN 1983
Weber Imperial Wagon,
I had to change this kettle and immediately wrote to the saleswoman. 2 days it took until she finally reported. The whole thing went back and forth for 2-3 days ....
Until I could finally make an appointment to pick up. 250 km I had to drive until I could finally see him live. I'm very happy to own such a rare kettle !!!!
If you have information for me, please give it to me.
Here some more pictures

Wow, what an incredible find.  I think this is the only one in the club.  Congrats!

The details of this thing are really interesting.  I've never seen a bowl with tabs and handles.  Also, one-touch with a cart is unique.

That is a very interesting find.  Great effort in securing it.

I do recall @Hogsy posting a brochure about this.
Perhaps he could update the photos.

G-code? hard to see, but that would make sense. (1985) I see the one-touch is the newer H-style. Wonder if it had the ring and ash bucket in the old style at one time and it all fell apart. Does not seem to be any provision for an ash pan so that would also make sense. Either way, very cool to have these photos - thanks for sharing.

I can not find a bracket or screw hole I can also imagine that an ash box was installed

That's pretty cool.
You just need to add  a modern ash catcher and a few hose clamps so it doesn't make a mess on your patio.
ISO Grey Charcoal go anywhere.
