That tool hanging off the door could be more sought after than the fridge itself.  I think it's for ice or something.  Travis knows, but can't tell us anymore.

Pretty sure

that's a 1935 as indicated by the round bezel surrounding the control knobs. I have a 36 which has a square bezel.

As per Travis

The tool is to remove the ice cube trays from the evaporator.

Nice Monitor Top!

Wiring and gaskets are all these beauties ever need. And the odd start relay after 80 plus years of service. Since it is a 35 CK as previously mentioned, it will work. They almost always do. And yes, that little tool hanging in the door is quite rare and is used to pry up frozen ice trays without damaging the evaporator. Wouldn't want to release that toxic SO2!
What a beauty. It even has the original door decal! We were able to get a reproduction made on my forum which people can purchase now. Looks just like the original. Somebody go save this piece of efficient history!

My sentiments exactly!

CKs are bullet proof...

No, seriously. I've seen one with a bullet in the condenser band that just missed the refrigerant passage. That slowed down the bullet enough to spare the compressor. Try that with a modern fridge!

Back when things were not only made to last but actually overbuilt. How many refrigerators built today will still be operating, as many Monitor Tops are without repair, 80 years from now??

I can give you an approximation...

And it begins with a 0.
