I have a new old stock caloric brand gas stove. 4 top burners and oven. Was brand new in box, but box stunk like mildew so we took it out of the box. Set up for natural gas but converts to propane(don't need to buy a conversion kit, orifices just need to be adjusted). Will throw in a brand new range hood as well(has a few minor scratches on it.)

you pickup, I can help you load it.

Cool Coloric Gas Range

This would be late 60s or early 70s, these had a semi-sealed type surface burner design that I always liked, the only really bad thing about these ranges was it still has constant burning pilots and this range has FOUR of them so it will cost you over $10 a month just to have it sitting in you kitchen, LOL. The pilots not only produce a noticeable amount of heat, bad smells and carbon monoxide, but the sealed top design also caused the lift-up cook-top to rust out badly from the underside.

I wish it was

White!!! I on the other hand ,dont want a gas stove UNLESS it has pilots!!LOL, Im funny that way...A pilot light oven is the perfect thing for proofing bread, plus the oven always works even if the power is out, and none of that infernal clicking!!!

Proofing Bread

Just leaving the 40 watt oven light on in a well insulated GE P-7 self-cleaning oven [ or other well insulated SC electric oven ] provides more than enough heat for making bread, and at a fraction of the cost of a constant burning pilot.

This could have be left over from an apartment complex, but it would have been a pretty upscale complex with the in oven Ultra-Ray waste high broiler, this feature alone added quite a bit of extra cost and mechanical complication to these ranges.
