No, I have not yet found it.

Well, that is, I had found it, thanks to an alert from John oldskool, but it was in St. Louis, it would have been a transportation problem at the best of times, and Winters this icy are not the best of times.

However, John's heads-up means that I have a photo of exactly the model I'd love to find. As you can see, it's a '70s model with the "Double-'L'" black door handles. I'm posting the photo in hopes that someday, someone will see one that is feasible for price, transport, etc.

It also has the trim kit on the doors; I think this meant you could put in your choice of panels to make it match your kitchen if you were into that sort of thing, which I'm not, but the chrome edge to the doors was really handsome.

Anyway, here she is - THE Amana.

And oh, yeah - she's White, which is a must.

....The ultimate piece of good luck would be to have one turn up locally.

Fridges are a bit tricky to transport; they're heavy as lead and really should be transported upright. I know they can be laid down if put back upright for a time before restarting, but that seems a bit risky for a system some decades old.

Anyway - the search continues.

That was the exact fridge minus the door trim my parents had.  That baby was a workhorse.  Very quiet too.

While im not into the 70s...

I remember seeing these at Bernhardt Seagle Hardware when I was a kid, they were very expensive TOL products as I remember.

Amana fridges of that era were premium-priced products, same as Maytags were in the washer field.

I really, really hope that someday (soon!) I can find one like the one in the photo.
