So I've been trolling CL for awhile, hoping to find a charcoal WGA... and I found one....$10... 3 1/2 hours away. Fortunately, I've got a nephew who goes to school 15 minutes from where this was listed. He picked it up tonight... unfortunately, I won't have it in my hands until he gets back to St. Louis for Christmas break. He said it appears to be in great shape. Wood handles with rivets, and he said it's an 'A' on the dampers! I haven't found too much on the history of the WGA... did they really make them in 1979?? Can't wait to give this beauty a good cleaning and fire her up! More pics will come when I finally get her in my possession.
ps - They threw the charcoal in for free. My nephew said that it was a "really old couple" who said that they upgraded. Since they threw in the charcoal, I'm guessing they must have "upgraded" to propane.
