In 1986 the wife and I found a three burner J C Higgens camp stove at a resale shop in Long Beach, CA. It didn't have a fuel tank so I got a propane adapter for it. It wasn't pretty but it did work very well and served us faithfully. Including camping out for nearly a month at Illinois State Beach while looking for an apartment when we transferred to Great Lakes after four years aboard USS Missouri. It sat in our attic for a bunch of years. Recently, our daughter asked to borrow it but was turned off by it's grungy look. She took our old Coleman instead. So, I took care of the problem. I disassembled it, stripped it, cleaned the burners and painted it. Rust-Oleum has a near perfect color match paint. Now, all I need to do is find a replacement decal.

Wowser! Robert, that looks fantastic! Bet you won't be storing that in the attic now. Welcome aboard the forum.

Hi Robert and welcome from western Mass. You did one heck of a job on your stove, very nice job. If you didn’t already, check with our host OCP. There is quite the decal section. Can I ask what color Rust-oleum paint matched your JC Higgens?

So while you are at it, its maybe time to find a replacement tank?

The stove came out great!

Very nice job on your stove! It's nice to see some other colors besides green 🙂

Looks like OCP might have the decal you are looking for:


And, welcome to the CCF!
