OK! Hold on to your hats, 10 Grand? They don't even provide enough quality pictures! And the washer is not original.

It sure isn't, and neither is the fridge or freezer.  I spotted the freezer as a Wards Tru-Cold immediately.  The interior looks identical to the '61 Tru-Cold in my basement. 


The seller's "GE Wonder Kitchen" description borders on false advertising.  I guess that's nothing unusual on eBay or Craigslist.

Yikes! Good luck with that!! It'd have to be brand-new-in-the-original-cartons to command a price like that.

You never know ...

Folks like me would see that and think "Only ten grand?? I'll take it!"

You never know who's out there and what kind of premium they'll place on it.

Myself, I'm looking for a mint condition double-oven (something like the photo below, only GAS, not electric). And frankly, adding in shipping costs (I'd send my own mover that's used to moving pianos and antiques), depending on its condition, I'd be willing to pay up to $10,000.

I think the seller was perhaps a little "0" crazy when they posted.

Makes me think

of the scene in Gone with the Wind where Scarlett's house servant Pork informs her she needs $300.00 to pay the back taxes on Tara. She tells him to stir the soap she's making while she goes to ask Ashley about the money. After walking away he says "asking ain't gettin".
