The copper and turquoise trim identify it as a 56 model. I have a matching 56 washer. If it were closer I'd inquire.

I would just inquire and if it's good, pick it up- how far away is it? How often do you find a matching dryer?
Though there are many beautiful washers and dryers, this 1956 style is a strong, beautiful statement. Um, that's my take.

You're right Phil. Especially with this one considering the age and that the redesign on the 56 Westy's were a one year only design. It would be a 10 hour drive one way to get it which I'm not interested in doing. Im going to guess shipping would probably be in the $300-$400 range.

Okay...Did some checking on UShip and got an idea on shipping cost. Not as prohibitive as I thought. Im going to contact the seller and see if they still have it.

Darn you Phil for putting ideas in my head! LOL

Good luck Ken!  If you do get it, the problem with the drum not turning is more than likely a dirty starting switch in the motor (that was all that was wrong with my '53).

Transit Systems would probably ship that to you for $650 that is who I use and it comes wrapped.

Thanks for the correction, I was guessing,

Shoot, Sheist, Shah-nuckles. I can't do anything right....put a bug in someone's ear and the next thing is their mortgage payment is delayed. Seriously, Ken - a ten hour PLUS trip I have done, but not that I planned it to take that long. I-85 from Atlanta to Charlotte was supposed to be about 4 hrs. It took six hours both ways due to construction and accidents. What a horrible drive!

Hence, a ten hour drive is a major commitment. $650 is probably the bigger commitment, for me. It sure is a beautiful dryer, though.
