"Older and uglier but work". You decide....but they look better than average in line.

Nice range,

and I'm thinking its newer than '64. I don't remember seeing a 40" P-7 until about '65, and don't think they had a window until '66 or so.

this g.e. stove

i like the stove with the double oven, i especially like that smaller oven on the left side. but the one thing i don't like about this vintage stove (and it was the same with our vintage g.e. drop in electric range, was & is the push button burner settings. i like the knobs that you can turn and set to variable hotness (if that's the right word?). but besides the push button burner controls, i really like this stove!!

Yep Bob, I spied the plastic, two piece lid too! I wonder if it has the tank.

I Think:

That 40-inch range is a very good-looking unit. I wonder if it's TOL, though - there's no Sensi-Temp. Or did Sensi-Temp exist yet - had they replaced the Automatic Calrod by that time? I know Sensi-Temp was around in 1966; Automatic Ephemera has an owner's manual from that yeat that shows it.

GE 40-inchers that did have Sensi-Temp had five knobs in addition to the burner pushbuttons instead of four like this one has. That's two oven selector knobs, two oven temperature knobs, and a Sensi-Temp knob. Sensi-Temp was not just available beginning with continuously-variable controls; it started in the pushbutton era.

P.S.: If I ever have room for a 40-incher, the range below is a dream range:

You've got my attention - do you have more information on the pictured GE stoveabove(post 722569),, model number, date manufactured and maybe a vintage ad link? It looks maxed-out with features and appears to be an early 60's model (wild guess).

I think the range in my post is a 1965 model. Automatic Ephemera has the 1966 Use & Care Guide, and the TOL 40-incher in there does not have the escutcheons for the door and drawer handles like this one does. Escutcheons are the plates behind each handle that dress up the handle. '66's just have handles, no escutcheons.

The range I posted is very definitely the TOL 40-incher, and it's complete. You can see the griddle, the correct original broiler pan with the rotisserie parts (the front support and spit for the rotisserie mount on the broiler pan), and the oven temperature probe. The presence of five dials on the control panel tells you it has two ovens and Sensi-Temp *, and the presence of a latch on the large oven tells you it's P*7 self-cleaning.

That photo I posted is an ancient CL shot, from years ago.

Again, I THINK the one I posted is a '65. Others here may disagree, and if one of the others is John Lefever, we'll have to take his word for it, since he's the most knowledgeable about GE ranges.

* GE 40-Inch Range Decoder:

When you're looking at want-ad photos, it can be hard to tell what features a GE range might or might not have. On pushbutton models, it's actually easy - count the dials.

Two Dials: Single oven (1 Oven Set and 1 Oven Temp dial)

Four Dials: Double oven (2 Oven Set and 2 Oven Temp dial)

Five Dials: Double oven plus Sensi-Temp (2 Oven Set, 2 Oven Temp and 1 Sensi-Temp dial)
