I just found a picture from 1999 of my first Boler that got "squached" where it was stored during winter because of too much snow on the roof of the building. Quality of the picture is so-so, I scanned it.

I just noticed something that I didn't remember, it had either reflectors or lights at the front (amber), my 1973 doesn't have that, would you know during with year (s) they were like that ? They were recessed. It didn't have the small window over the cooking area.

I purchased my Boler last fall (I'm the third owner) and have some of the original documentation. The original label on the side indicates that it was built here in Winnipeg in February 1973 and I have the orignal warranty card indicating it was purchased by the first owner May 3, 1973.
It has the front refectors that are mounted in recesses and does not have the small window over the stove area. After seeing your post I looked at pictures of other 73 Eggs and none had the reflectors that I could see.
According to the information I have seen, the Boler was being produced in several locations by 1973, so it is possible that there were some differences between plants or some changes were made throughout the production year. Looks like your previous Boler could also have been a '73 as it sounds just like mine (except the colour...mine is green on the bottom)

Thanks Clay. The father of my wife was the second owner. As far as he can remember he said that it may was a 73. It was original green when he got it but repaint the upper white and bottom brown as the gelcoat was badly worn.

The one I have right now (without the reflectors) still have the label saying that it was made September 73 at Earlton, so as you said, my previous one must have been made elsewhere.

Regards

There's a 1973 brochure in the document section that shows the front reflectors. The advertisement says Glass Fab in Peace River.

Mine is a '73 Glass-Fab and has no front reflectors. I think that there was a lot of whimsy around Boler plants.
