Got this off of E-Bay - Can't wait to get it up and running - Seems to work fine just needs cleaning out (Lint) - The motor, heating element, & timer all work.
Here are a few pics.

Bob, a big Texas howdy and salute to you!!  Beautiful dryer.  Glad you snagged it.  Would you happen to have a single Unimatic that 's looking for a cousin or mate?  :-)

Yay! A picture of a Frigidaire 1956 set was the first picture ever I saw of a classic Frigidaire set. Hopefully you will find a matching washer soon.

For all the nice responses. I would give anything to have the washer. You never know when one might show up. Yes Hans - I need your expert ability now more than ever - I have two more rollermatics coming soon. I'm such a Frigidaire guy - Would love to have one from every year especially all the unimatics. They are definitely my favorite machine ever !!! Tyler - Give me a call so we can talk about getting the 1-18 to you.

I have actually only run across one of these sets of Frigidaires in all the years I have been around. There was a nice set of them sitting in the field I used to get stuff at back in the early 70's, but that is the only set I ever came across. I always thought it pretty cool that the light up dials were real glass and not plastic, like everything was later on.
