Not a 1972... Maybe a 1964 - '67 perhaps???

And with the manuals too!

I have had a fascination with the idea of combination washer / dryers for as long as I can remember! Wish that one was closer.

Looks like the poor dear has had some exposure to the elements. Wonder if it was in a barn or even just sitting outside. "Works good" claim should be questioned thoroughly before smacking down three bills.

Ours was like this one but older (1964 from a 1963 purchase on 11/03/'63) and lasted us almost thirty years with only one major repair. The balance system took a dump aftercmy dad moved the unit to install new flooring. That caused havoc because he didn't unlock the balance system look prior to moving it out. It took over a month to get it going but Charlie, our Sears service tech, after cussing and squirming around on our new floorto get to the mechanism, fixed it by a complete overhaul.I truly miss that gas combo. The average cycle took about 90 minutes from washto dry and the clothes came out clean and fresh smelling

Yeah, they're still optimistic on the price; "poor thing" wants rich daddy.
