If the interior color scheme can be used as an indicator.


It's all there and very nice, but not $700 nice.  You still have to defrost it yourself.


Server not found on the link, so wasn't able to see the rest of the pix, if there are any.

I've never seen a GE with a bottom mount freezer like the one shown on the cover of the brochure. Can anyone shed some light on that model?

Rick, thanks. I'm laughing, as I tried it and it worked.
So, before posting, the link worked in the posting, and didn't work after I posted it.
LOL! I'll be trying the link after I post, from now on.

Ken - $11 ? That's really free, with a few dollars for lunch or something. I like it.

Were the 50's turquoise appliances typically blue-green or were some available in the more pastel turquoise? I'm trying to identify if turquoise varied from the more blue-green in the fifties to softer turquoise in the last years of the turquoise offerings?

Thanks all.

My GE was on ebay. I bid it to $11.50. When I went to get it the seller said not to worry about the .50.

In the pics here the fridge looks to be a robins egg blue but its actually more green than it appears. And Im sure it must have faded some over the years.

Just bought one very similair (opposite side open) in Chicago for 225. (I only live 90 miles from Lincoln, NE) We were going to Chicago for a motorcycle and figured I might as well bring home a fridge too!

The seller had tried to rattlecan it blue (originally white) and then tried to strip the paint. I'll be refinishing the exterior in a Mamie-pink to go in my teal kitchen!

I believe the only thing mine is missing is the aluminum ice-trays, all shelves and racks are in beautiful working order!

That was the first year of GE's bottom mount. Same color configuration as the model featured, with a mechanical latch on the refrigerator compartment.
