Holy Grail part deux
« on: October 12, 2012, 06:40:24 PM »
Well on the way to work this morning I happened by an estate sale and found this....


Here it is in my truck




Got it in the yard and of course Phoebe checked it out first





It had this weird home made rotisserie attached,


 


Then the dynamic duo both showed up for trouble





I was able to get the roti off and here it is.  It was almost dark by then so I had to use the flash, and I hate the flash...





I have to say it's been a hell of a week for me.....

Amazing.  I heard that you are out of room for all your grills of late...I'll stop by and take that Seville off your hands.  I wouldn't want your pups to be overcrowded in their yard and have nowhere to run!

I didn't think you were in the seville market Jeff....You would have to roll it into your kitchen....You gotta get that hot tub out of your Weber museum.   ;)

Id love a Seville...but I actually like the "Big Wheel" one just a little bit better, but I would take one like yours in a heartbeat.  I'd love a big wheel one in lime like the one AJ won't go get!  LOL...And yeah, if the hot tub ever dies, look out, I'll have a LOT more room for more grills!

Dang it Brain... You found yourself a nice one. The bowland lid look to be in good condition.
Does it look all original?

I ended up paying $70 for it.  At one time they were asking $200.  It is in pretty good shape.  They added some brackets to it right next to the original brackets, the ones that keep it in the cart.  I'll have to investigate what is going on with this.  Otherwise it is really pretty good.
Of course the handle is shot....

Brian, WTH!!?? How do these things just fall into your lap? Call me crazy, but for a good condition Seville, I'd pay the cost of a new OTS or maybe a OTG. That is an outstanding find! Was it from the original owner? That is a SCORE!!!  8)

Yea it had to be the original owner....The rest of the house was pretty old looking.....I really think the only place you'll find this kind of stuff are older neighborhoods.  They have to be old enough to have been around when this stuff was new.......I feel like I got so lucky...I didn't ever think I would find a seville or a yellow 22 ever. Now both in one week....crazy!

You are living the dream, Brian!  Congrats on your great week. 

I've not found anything nearly this old, but I think I'm noticing the value of estate sales as a place to pick up older grills-- it seems like it would take a major move or a significant change in life to get someone to part with something they've kept and treasured for so long.  And at the same time, it is really satisfying to know that the grill is going to be used and valued in a way that would hopefully please the person parting with it.

I was looking at the old catalogs, this one is supposed to be from 1973, the Seville was priced at $169.95.  That's a hell of a lot of money in 1973. 





Just thought it was interesting.....

Impressive score Brian! Amazing find sir!  That's a real piece of Weber history you found. I bet it will clean up like new. I can't wait to see it. :)
