One cleaned up and that is the one I will use but wondered about the other one in that it is not green in color.
Any thoughts whose brand it might be?

The brown/red color one looks like a duracamp stove. It should have a yellow tank.

The second stove has been identified as a Coleman 425F. Made in the 70's and probably will be a parts unit due to poor shape. Must have been loved a lot!
I did look up the green one and its a 425B made 54 to 62. The rusty one clearly has a red tank and it does fit good.
Also has a hinged grate and hasp on lid. After I get some fuel I will see how these heat up.

That Coleman 425 can be restored easily, wash well with hot soap and water, and then soak the rusted parts in evaporust overnight, the case can be washed well first with some simple green or with kaboom grease remover, then in the dishwasher, if you want to have it nice, you can spray paint it afterwards with krylon hunter green.

My stove was in similar shape.
