Canary yellow - looking yellow-green from here.

Ad: " Very cool canary yellow vintage fridge by General Electric, model year 1956. Has a few cosmetic flaws, but over all in good working order and in good shape. Original door latch mechanism is broken, has been modified with a magnet (pic# 3), and this fix seems to be working fine. I don't think it would be that hard to fix, we just haven't tried. Features revolving shelves (to grab hard to reach items), and peddle step to open freezer. All shelves and compartments included (missing in pic b/c removed to clean). Great for retro style kitchen or garage. Believe we are the third owner. $175; will consider reasonable offers.

Best to reach by email or text; phone calls ok, just might take a little longer to get back to you.

Can't be much help moving on this end. You will want to bring a friend or two, a dolly and a truck. "

Interior color scheme indicates 1955. 


Wow.  Two '55 bottom freezer GE's posted within a 24 hour period!

Another indicator of the date - mechanical latch on the refrigerator compartment. In 1956 GE introduced the magnetic catch.
