New to the forum. I LOVE the old vintage kitchens I've been seeing on here but don't have one myself & need to part ways with the stove that came with our house. I'm sure someone here has some insight to it's value? I have no clue. I've found other colors ranging from $300 to $1500. I don't know if the yellow is a plus or a drawback. I'm sure it works but not sure how well. It only has 2 small chips on the exterior & the interior has some rust in the warming drawers. It appears one knob may have been replaced, there's no meat thermometer or griddle. Would just like it to find a new home deserving of such style! (For a price, of course)! Thank you all for any input.

It's definitely a 1956 model...

GE Pushbutton Magic

Also found this video on YouTube, 1948 sales pitch for GE electric ranges. Too funny!

What a great ad! I didn't know that GE had the two position bake unit or the pressure cooker. Does anyone know what kind of car they show with the power window? Seems pretty fast, maybe hydrolic (sp)?

I think the car with the power window in the YouTube video may be a Lincoln. Their early power window switches looked like the one in the video. And, yes it would have been hydraulic. When the hydrailic lines in these cars with early power windows sprung a leak the fluid would run out the bottom of the door.
