Jon looks like he's going to be making a trip to pickup the grills he owns around the mid west. I have one I'm holding for him too! Wonder how many others he's got locked up?Larry, it is being held for Jon. I did pick it up this am. It is in better condition than expected. The wood looks original with even original finish. The wood needs work, but is in surprisingly good condition. The wood is better than any Genesis 1000 I have ever picked up and the handle is in great shape which is very unusual. The serving tray is in good shape. It is the gray color ceramic with the red pin stripes. Everthing on the grill look good except for the frame. It has a lot of surface rust, but looks solid otherwise. It has a tank holder on it so I am wondering if it started out life as a LP grill.
I have photos and will post tonight.
That's a pretty cool find, especially with that original side burner. I hope you can restore it to its original look as that one has history.
I found these two 1985 Weber Genesis 3 print ads on Pinterest. Note that these grills have the rarely seen wide wooden slat shelving. Also, the Weber phone number is 800-000-0000...perhaps these were early design comps. Genesis 3 shown here came with the side burner as standard equipment...tvwbb.com

Question for you guys -- id like to replace the bottom porcelain tray. this is item #99250 correct? If so where can I get one? Seems to be sold out everywhere.
He's talking about a "aluminum cook box stud", so that's confusing for me. I interpret that to mean the boss in the cookbox casting that the screw screws into...if it was a broken screw, he would say it was a broken screw, wouldn't he?This week I picked up a 2000, 1100, and a 1000 all redheads. The 1100 and 1000 are donors but still sellable when I am done. Just need a few pieces. One issue that I have is the rails that attach to the bottom of the cook box has one stud that broke off. Anyone have a suggestion on how to repair the aluminum cook box stud so the rails will attach and stay?
