I took this picture right from the catalog





I think it was the only 26 listed, Ed Rielly said this was a 1963 catalog

But I'm not trusting the years of these catalogs, if the one is a 62, and the other picture is supposed to be 63, there is no mention of the Westerner.  However the one we all believe to be 64' has wooden handles.  Clearly there is metal handled Westerners....Not sure when these catalogs were actually from.....

I am thinking the 1962 Grandpa is the original Fleetwood and it came in silver. Then in 1963 they continued the Fleetwood only black instead. (Hey it's easier.) Notice the lids are just like Troy's red 26'r? I think the flat top came in later. Has anyone ever seen a flat top with a metal top handle? I'm thinking the flat lid change came in sometime after. I still think the Westerner came at least around 1959, but the handle was turned opposite of Winz. The Westerner might have said 'New' later because it was either reintroduced or because it had some changes like the wood handle.
