Thanks to FilterFlo, my washer has found its partner. Does anyone have either grey ring or the grey agitator cap to help me complete this set?

Beautiful!!!! I too have a '56 Frigidaire Washer (on Loan) and it too needs new agitator parts. If I find a source I'll let you know. -Steve

The '56 model seems as rare as a '57. I'm thrilled for you. And Jimmy, thanks for helping match a set. Yes, I do love matched sets the most. Such balance and symmmetry.

Congrats Rich! Just beautiful! I have the same washer, and I believe Jon in Boston has one, and Tom in DC has the dryer. I'd love to find a dryer for myself. This set is sooo CLASSIC! Congrats!

Awesome Rich! How long have you been looking for the dryer? They are truly beautiful. The gray ring and cap will turn up one day, that color was used as replacements for all models after everything else was NLA so there's bound to be some still out there.

Rich they are so nice. Yes I have a '56 washer tucked away that will be displayed soon. It was from the Farm and the Pink was completely gone but I was able to get ahold of some Aniline dye and recreate the color perfectly. I am lacking a tub for it though and have been using the earlier W0-65 tub which just clears the rim under the lid. Anybody have a 9 pound tub out there that would like some Moolah for it??

Enjoy Rich 56 was a great year Pink in Frigidaire and Copper on GE!!

Is that what i think it is in the background?

Love the beautiful matched set Frigidaire, but when I took another look at the photo I cant but help and wonder if that is one of the "Holy Grail" 1-18's?

I would love to see some pictures of that machine!
