    Niice!!!

    I've noticed on my 425e that there are those same holes on the tank tabs... did these stoves come with some sort of retaining pin for the tank? I improvised some with a pair of clevis? pins. works nice. Got them at ACE hardware less than $1 for 4.

    Hello Xavi,
    I've never been very interested in the big Coleman stoves, 'till now. You did a beautiful job restoring it, and it looks perfect there on the door of your Transporter. I'd love to see more photos of your VW.

    Thanks,
    Gary

    I have several NIB Coleman 425E299 suitcases (early and mid seventies), when I purchased them they were unopened, none of mine came with tank retaining pins, I am assuming that Coleman put them there to retian the tank but did not supply them with the stove(s).

    I really think the tank in my 425 was replaced at some point with a new unit. The paint is really shinny and there are no scratches like in the whole case...

    When I saw the holes in the tank tabs I thought in using a pin to holt the tank to the case... But the tabs shape really do his work...

    I bought an unused Coleman 425E for $3.00 at a thrift store. As you can imagine, I was thrilled. It was my first pressure stove, and now I also have a Coleman 413, Coleman 533, BAT K3, 2 Swedish mess kits with the Svea alcohol burner, and a Sievert 925 propane stove. I paid $24.00 for the unused BAT, and $30.00 for the very lightly used Sievert(still full of propane, got to test it out before buying) at my favorite army surplus store.
    Did I pay too much?
