The two burner is in the AS at the storage lot, but it's a pretty standard, all green with the green wings and red tank.

Heres the lantern:

I'll burn off the old fuel before storing this time.

Rich,

Those pic's are great. Its amazing that they fired up with old fuel and no tinkering. I still have the box for my lantern too, it's a model 220.

I'd really like to participate in an "old school" AS campout. My rig is too new, but I'd sure like to see a re-enactment style camp.

Gary

Thanks, Gary,

The neat thing about the stove....we all think "dual-fuel" stuff is pretty new....but it runs on gasoline, diesel, kerosene or jet fuel. And of course white gas, at $8 - $10/gal....but it is clean. The old stove was surplus when I was in Junior High School and starting to backpack. The generator in it was carboned up beyond cleaning, but there was a spare in the "kit". Several years ago, I found an old guy in Indiana who had a lot of parts and I bought up all the leather and wearing parts I could. Should be good for the next generation.....

For those that might be interested, there is a great Coleman Collectors Club; I have been a member since 1998 and have gone to one of their conventions. If you ever get a chance to go to one, don't miss it. My favorite Coleman is an old 1961 red single mantle with a hand held reflector. I keep it in our AS but haven't used it in a while. Maybe I'll light it up at the BBQ Ralley next weekend.

Believe me, the Coleman Collector's Club is a class act. They are the "Airstream" of antique collectors, and if you join, you'll find out. Everything they produce from their newsletter, patches, and annual meeting is way above anything you will find anywhere else. If you own an old Coleman product, you need to join this club.

"New" Addition

Folks,

Found this 425E dated 770 (7/70) at a trash and treasure store and just couldn't say no. Minimal burn time almost no discoloration over main burner, green paint pretty good also tank looked line new. Cleaned out a little crud from tank, installed old but serviceable piston from the other 425E. Makes pressure, added fuel and it came to life and we used it this AM to perk this pot. It ain't a prize winner but its real low burn time and over all survivor great condition sold it.

Wow, GC, that looks like new! My wife and I have one a few years older that was once my grandparents'. It works great, but has had heavy use and looks it. We always have it along as a backup cooking option and outside stove in the warmer weather. Also have a 2 mantle lantern almost as old and in similar condition.

Will post pics next time I dig them out.

We still have our old Coleman stove from our tent camping days. We keep it on our AS, but it also comes in handy during hurricane season when the electricity invariably fails.

Wichita, we have a new problem.

I can't really use all 3 of my old Coleman stoves at one time!

Went back to the treasure and trash shop where I found the real nice 425 last year looking for something else, described it and the gal reached down and said, is this what you are looking for?

Nope, but its now sold.

I've never seen this model before, but that don't mean much they made 100's of models this is a 413 G dated 7/68.

It needed a new CHECK VALVE AND AIR STEM, TANK CAP and some TLC. They left some fuel in it and that made like a varnish on the tank check valve that was the biggest nasty. The paint is darn good survivor grade, minimal burn time and the frame is about 4" wider than a 425. It looks real good IMHO.

Ain't this fun!

I have a Coleman 2 burner 425E I bought back in the 70s when a hurricane was coming into Florida. I've used it off and on as my kids went through Scouting. My youngest finished up about 10 years ago but I still stay active with our church Cub Scout Pack. That old 425E burns even old fuel and it draws many remarks from other campers who carry a bunch of those 1 lb. propane cylinders. I just carry my gallon of fuel.

I have a Coleman Camp Stove model 426, 3-burner I picked up off of eBay for a song. It's the one I take in the AS and I love making breakfast on that thing. The 3-Burner was well used but even came to me in the original box. I'm not a collector, more of a user. I have 2 mantle dual fuel lantern. It too draws a lot of attention. Pump it up, light it, let it burn until lights out.

Coleman still has parts for these stoves and lanterns, albeit expensive. The collecter's club has information on their website about cleaning / servicing. So far I've used several strong cleaners and pellet rifle cleaning tools to keep mine working. These things are almost indestructible.

Rich,

I was looking back at this and guess what? I picked up a Rogers, Akron OH M1950 with case/can last year. A minor bit of tinkering and whoosh we got heat. And it has 3 generators. what a unique little stove.

Pappy19 thanks for showing me the Coleman forum, great bunch of folks. What's your screen name over there?

Gary
