Wow, I believe that is a '59, and yes, the color is 100 percent factory original CHARCOAL!  Very, very handsome.

So many styling touches on one unit - it's like the '59 Caddy of refrigerators!

Oh, that's quite close to my favorite, the 1958 model! And the price is ok! There was a pink one advertised a few years ago in the province of Ontario but the asking price was 10 times more... 


I hope somebody grabs it! Ben, it would have matched nicely with the RCI-59 range you sold recently! I wish both were sold to me! 


Here's a picture of the pink one that was for sale in Canada

Black & blue.  I'm sure there's a member or few who are into that color scheme . . .
