Is this one of those early "elastic be damned" models that just about cooks what you put into it?

Not if you don't over dry, select low heat and remove elasticized and delicate items items while damp. It was made in a time, 1954-55, when a great majority of the laundry done at home was cottons and synthetic fabrics were mostly things like nightgowns.

You say select low heat. Does this model have different temp settings? I thought it was a single (high) heat model?

I think there was a heat switch above the timer. Earlier GE dryers than this one had a heat selector.
