It's interesting knowing that the next of kin to my Boler is still out there. And here it is on FGRV.

BTW what is the vent for at the top of the closet in yours?

Thanks
Sorry I wandered away. Hey Clive, the vent is for an airconditioner. A previous owner installed it in the top of the closet. Works great!

Someone on another site just told me that NO Bolers were actually made in Wichita. Is that correct?

Ted: thanks for the reply.

I for one would be very interested in more detailed photos of that A/C install if you ever felt inclined. Perhaps in it's own thread.

As far as I have been able determine that is correct. Most of the history has been posted to this thread: Egg History- Boler descendants
Internet sleuthing shows boler American (Eleanor International) in a 2nd floor office in Wichita. The location would not be suitable for any kind of industrial fabrication. Scamp has recently added some new history on their site saying that they started making trailers for a "marketing company".

I backed off on my research a few years back when MattH was running around the continent interviewing people for his documentary. We shared a lot of info and I was hoping his efforts would come to fruition and tie the missing pieces together. Since then both Matt and his unfinished documentary slipped below the radar. Occasional posts such as this remind us to ask what happened to both?

I have not yet been able to figure out what happened to boler American in mid 1972. Everybody involved has been quite on the events. Some of those involved have passed on. Most recently was Sandor Dusa, earlier this year. He had designed the boler and was one of the 3 owners that sold the American manufacturing rights to the people based in Wichita.

My 1972 Boler American is Number 5010! SO does this mean it's number 10 off the assembly line?

"IT(the post) LIVES!" This is a pretty interesting side note to the Boler Story, I found an article in a Scamp Owners summer news story, talking about the history of Boler Americans from someone with first hand information, I'd post the Link,But I'm new here so not sure if posting external links is cool? If it's alright let me know!
