Hi all,

I came across a Frigidaire WO 65 2 in a garage and would like to sell it rather than scrap it. The sheet metal seems to be in great shape. The other metal parts need some TLC to look nice though. It appears to be complete. I do not know if it works, but without a doubt it will need a good cleaning. I would love to fully restore it, but appliances are not my gig, I'm more of an internal combustion guy. Anyone think there's a market for something like this, or would I be better off hauling it to the scrap yard?

I posted it to Craigslist, we'll see if there's a response. I need to clean up the exterior so I can take some more pictures, but my free time is limited.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Think someone here would be interested. It may help for you to post a couple more pics, maybe the control panel tub shot ect. If someone here wants it, it will more than likely be repaired (if necessary) and for sure will go to a good home.

I sent an email. I have another WO65-2 in the garage that needs parts.

Someone here will more than likely express an interest in it. You definitely need more shots besides just the mfg. tag. Overall shot, the console and a tub shot of the inside would be helpful.

Adding some pictures. It could still use some more clean-up.
