Possible Generation One Genesis

I believe this is first a first generation Genesis based on the tank scale? Thoughts? Sorry about posting pics in Imgur. I post from my phone.

Yes it is. Black knobs, wide whitewalls and early style igniter button. As Chris said above, the side burner was added. Notice the different style igniter button and white knob on it. I have been looking for a control panel like that for one of mine...
The pic that Chris posted shows a newer style fuel gauge and igniter button.

Pretty cool one, Bobby. I agree the side burner is an add-on but otherwise that is the real deal early issue Genesis 1.

Pretty cool. My father had a first generation Genesis. He later sold it and bought a Genesis 1000 that I now have.
