    This stove has obviously had little use and when it came to me there was still packing grease on some of the steel parts.

    The instructions on the inside of the fold out windshield have not survived as well as I'd hoped

    The cast alloy burner and chrome fuel tank both have the patent numbers and in addition the burner unit is also stamped M2067 which I assume to be a date stamp

    The pump still pressurises well and the spanner has a swivel pricker attached by a rivet. The pricker slots behind a flap on the pan stand which is turned upside down for packing

    Nice one Will. My friend Mick just found me one of these - but no external pump. These are fairly rare & I believe one of three models Villiers produced.


    As far as your photo's are concerned - you're just showing off now!! :lol:

    Seriously though that optimiser is brilliant and will probably be very useful when posting pics to the likes of auction sites when uploads can take a while with a big picture. :clap:

    G,day, as I from Wolverhampton and now the Villiers' factory for motor bike 2 stoke engine I did not know they made stoves. Is there a site so I can find more about them?
