I hope someone is able to rescue this one too. Robert, any further info on it from the guy? It appears to be in great shape too.

Robert, do you know the actual working condition of the machine? The console light appears to work, and it also appears to be hooked up, but it could have some unseen problems we're unaware of.

Beautiful! We had the gas version of this machine when I was a kid. My uncle the Bendix man ordered it toward the end of 1957 and it came before Christmas. I can remember my uncle going under the house and sawing off the bolts to the old bolt down Bendix Delux that came with my parents house in 1949. Then taking out the stationary tub so the machine would fit into the space in the service porch, running the gas line from the hot water heater to the machine and cutting a vent hole into the floor for the dryer vent. I thought it was so cool to go under the house with my uncle and help him out. Maiden wash was the kids PJ's. What fun. The next day the neighbor ladies came over to watch this new machine run thru its cylces. Many households still used wringers or just basic washers and clothes lines. I am sure mom had the coffee pot going and some little treat for her guest way back in 1957. I was in heaven to see that machine come in thru the door. Dano

I don't know anything more than you guys do, he sent me the pictures, I asked him if it would be ok if I post it for anyone who might be interested in purchasing the machine from him and he emailed back and said "sure".
