Here are some better pictures of this beautiful fridge.  In spite of it running the meter, it's very nice.  I am not really sure why anyone advocating for vintage appliances would get hung up of energy use, whether that be water with washers or electric for refrigerators.


I got the worst of the previous owners crud off of it.  The freezer gasket is deteriorating, though is fine if I don't try to clean it.  I was very amused to learn how to use the ice trays, fancy!


There's still some specs on the freezer door.

And am gonna pester you until you sell it to me :D Next to my '63 Frigidaire, this one is my all-time favorite (well, the 19 cu.ft version…but a 16 would please me to no end).

Rust spots

BTW--have you tracked down the source of the old rust areas on the panel below the freezer? My '63 has those as well, and I don't know if it was from a formerly-blocked freezer drain, or what. Just sort of curious...

That's dirty tape below the freezer.  I am space challenged in the garage now.  I can't do much more cleaning.  I am not 100% sure what to do with it.  I do like that it has an actual freezer, unlike my beloved monitor tops.


My ball top is going to the painter on the 10th.  I swear I will be gaining some room shortly.
