A couple years ago, Ralph Kirby in Spokane, WA had one. I don't know if he still has it however.

I didn't actually get to finish the post. I am not use to the forum. I am wondering how hard they are to find? I have a 55 installed now on the 57 and it works but I would like to change back to the 57.

Hopefully you and RB can strike a deal, Ron. I'm not sure I'm ready to part with mine.

Not sure how much work you want to put into one or if you just want to bolt it on but I saw one hanging on the barn wall at Gene Mitchell's farm in Baldwin Kansas 2 years ago that looked fairly good. His kids were trying to sell his parts and cars after he passed. It may be still there. I have their contact info.

Also I have a spare one I bought in South Bend several years ago that needs some patching finished here in Kansas City. Not that far from you. PM me if you're interested.

Hello, If you have skills in fiberglass work, I have 3 spare 57 and newer transtar grills. Together they would make one or maybe two good grills. I have use for the grill "Deaf Mute" spoke of.
