There have been better deals, but I post this to ask anyone this the stainless steel version? I know the top is coppertone, but the rest looks different from any of the Americana's found on CL, at least.

It looks to be woodtone, not coppertone... which I think would make this a very early version of the Americana, because woodtone didn't last much into the sixties... As Hans said, it is an upper unit only, they were available like this without the lower oven.

I believe 1962 was the last year for Woodtone.

I mentioned I like this oven design and now I'm wondering if this design(graphically chromatic, as best as I can describe it), was extended, if available, to a second oven. I'm imagining this would be doubly beautiful, with the woodtone top and a second oven that matched the style on top.

Phil, all of the Americana double ovens that I have seen extend the color of the surface units (in this case woodtone) to the lower oven door (with or without an oven door window), I do not recall ever seeing a silver finish or full glass lower door.

That's how they looked for the first couple of years they were offered. The double-oven models had exactly the same styling as the single-oven models.

Jeff - I have the same observations, but if Ken says the lower ovens with or without the windows had the same silvery finish, I hope I come across one. But if they only made them for a couple years like that, they're probably very rare.

Thank you!

Glomain -

Thanks for the offer. I meant that I would like to see one of these in a photo. These Skylight(?) or Skyview(?)windows were only made for a couple years, as I learned. They were succeeded by the GE P7 ovens, so I'm more inclined to admire these Skyview/Skylight models for now. I'd collect stoves if I had room, though!

Here are some member's Americana's - Ben, do you still have that coppertone beauty?

Yep, sure do! Made dinner on it tonight. Mine is a '63, which must be the first year for coppertone.

I have a coppertone GE Americana range, with upper and lower ovens, that looks like the one pictured in Reply #10. The griddle and rotisserie and owner's manual are all here. I would love to sell it. If that $300 is a fair price, I'm in. Is this the best forum for that or do I need to deal with those huge websites? I'm in Southern California and can't deal with shipping it anywhere.

It's the right forum...but a separate posting and photos of your unit many of the outside and interior to give a complete, overall view...would be very helpful.
