    Hi Chaps :thumbup:

    Got this from an old-timer shop in Morgantown, PA.
    I might, clean it up, then again, I might not.
    It cost $19, 6 less than what it cost to get it here.
    Oiled the pump, added fuel, added pressure, then a match.
    Lovely.

    Its getting on a bit.
    Had to use the cap of my bomber 400 as its game over for the original seal.

    Nice score!!! I look forward to see the pictures.

    Importing more of those American stoves I see. Just don't export your motorcycles and I am fine with that.

    You know it's burning hot when the grate turns red like that!

    Great stove.

    Early enough.

    I've got a Aug 65 with a "billboard" base, old Coleman logo with "Sunshine of the Night" stamped, and then the rest, like yours has there
