Sorry I cannot attach the link, but there is a new in box 1st Generation Performer listed for sale on Craigslist in North Jersey(Saddle Brook,NJ). Black kettle, new tank. Beautiful.
I would go and get it myself, but a enjoying being married
Wow what a great find. I found a Gen one that had been sitting under a Weber cover in a garage for 15 years,
original bill of sale, owners manual and the match holder....
The son asked me if they still make Weber BBQ's when I bought it.
