Long story. Short version here, super good price from super good guy, dropped off with my Cousin in Oklahoma City. I'm 400 miles away. Finally, after TWO YEARS I picked up this holiday!

Such unusual Coleman items. It's hard to imagine these things surviving all these years with out getting scrapped and they probably gave good service for decades unlike todays water heaters.
I see a 463. Is the other a model # 1 ?

Yeah, talk about a Happy Thanksgiving at last! :lol:

Very nice units, Mike. I've never really looked into these. Coleman made such a diverse line of products in the old days, and we only realize mainly the lanterns and stoves.
Do these use a type of HGP burner? Looks like one in one of the pics.

Don't forget to warsh behind yer ears!
