C code - UK
« on: March 18, 2019, 10:23:57 AM »
Guys, here in the UK older grills are hard to come by, however, this has just popped up for sale, a 1981 c code. Not sure of the colour.

Itís clearly wrongly assembled. Lid looks pretty clean, but, I asked for photos of the bowl and was sent back the bottom pic and it looks rough. Now, itís fairly priced, but, itís a good 6 hour round trip to collect. Is it worth it or is the bowl too far gone?

Cheers.

I can't comment on condition, but since any sort of agent is probably thin on the ground in the UK.

I pass from London to Manchester on occasion, if it's of any help

Good luck, older kettles are super rare in the UK

Based on the lid being in really good shape with no ruts near the handle, just dusty, I'm guessing the legs are solidly attached to the bowl, which is key.  Possibly stored inside for quite a bit of its life & the condition of the bottom looks like it is low enough that you really won't see it too much.


Good luck.

Hal

Beautiful chocolate/coppermist 18.  Love the legs on it.  If the seller won't ship, and if you have the time to collect it... definitely worth it IMO.

I have a much longer roundtrip scheduled for tomorrow, which I hope goes off without a hitch.

If itís something thatís very rare in your area and you want it, go get it! 6 hours will pass if you plan a road trip or not. Like Bob mentioned, you could ask if the seller would ship first, but if they wonít and theyíd agree to hold it for you then Iíd just plan a day of it.

Hello @Hacksaw, i am from Austria and this Chocolate is a nice 18" Eurolegged girl. It also has the clips at the bent legs to fix the wheels.
The bowl will look inside like the outside (porcellaine loss). Typical European condition. The people leave the ash inside over winter, ash sucks humid and is wet. The rest you know.....rust

If it's fairly priced, I'd go for it.

@Bertl  The inside won't necessarily look like the outside. I have several grills where the outside looks like a 15yr old with a bad case of zits, but the inside looks as sweet as a supermodel's butt.
