    This beauty is 100% original. Never fueled or fired.
    It still has the inspection tag attached. I'm "hard pressed" to keep this a "virgin". :-k

    Very nice example. I've never seen one in this condition. I could use one today for a corn boil.

    To my way of thinking, it would be a pity to light it after all this time.

    Just my two penn'orth...

    Reminds me of a quote from Aliens from 1986, "we must save the girls from virginity". Anyhow, would not light it after all this time and rather buy a used one for the fun of it. Very nice stove you got there.

    Bob,

    Very nice 460! The mother of all Coleman burners at 55,000 BTUs for a single burner.

    Just remind yourself that it drinks petrol as fast as your car and the urge to light it will pass.

    The one thing this BEAST was missing was the support strut ring that goes from the tank top to the burner pan. That condition has been remedied.

    Do you know how to take apart the generator on a 460?

    Same as on a 457 I guess.
    I did a fair amount of dismantling/assembly in this thread HERE.
